Dolphy 1928 – 2012 : “Comedy’s Dead, But Long Live Comedy”

Rodolfo Vera Quizon, Sr. also known as “Dolphy”

“My father Dolphy left at 8:34 p.m. following a cardiac arrest. He lived a full life. He’s at rest. He’s at peace. He knew as he was going how much the country loved him. He knew how everyone was praying for him. And if he could, he would have stayed so just he could thank you personally.

But where his spirit was strong, his body had so weakened. He had to go…” – Eric Quizon




Rodolfo Vera Quizon, Sr. also known as “Dolphy” passed away last night (July 10,2012) due to cardiac arrest. The man knew for his comedy antics and one of the true national treasure made his final curtain call.

Every Filipino in every walks of life has been touched thru his acts in movies, theater, TV and radio, the Filipinos adored are mourning to his passing.

Jack ‘n’ Jill

First seen in the movie with Fernando Poe, Sr. in “Dugo at Bayan (I Remember Bataan)”, and billed as Rodolfo Quizon before being introduced by the father of Francis Magalona to Dr. Jose “Doc” Perez, the owner of Sampaguita Pictures in 1952. His first movie with Sampaguita was “Sa Isang Sulyap Mo, Tita”, with Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran. It was also in Sampaguita were the comedy duo of Dolphy and Panchito became popular. And the rest is history.

But for me, Mang Dolphy is best known as “John Puruntong” in “John and Marsha” a hit in the 80s where I grew up with, and thankful and lucky to be part of the generation who watch and be entertained by the King. And now that he is gone, the Filipino life will continue but life will now be different without the King of Comedy.

Dolphy farewell and thank you…

So long, farewell and thank you for the laughter’s for without you, common Filipino life would be so very dull.
