It’s our sad duty to report on the passing of Mr. Eddie Garcia. The iconic actor, according to the medical bulletin of the Makati Medical Center—which CNN Philippines posted—the Filipino Film icon passed on at 4:55 this afternoon, June 20, 2019.
The full bulletin, prepared by MMC Division Head Dr. Artemio Salvador, read: “Mr Eduardo “Eddie” Garcia passed away today, June 20, at 4:55 pm. We join the entire Filpino community in praying for the soul of Mr. Eddie Garcia and his dearly beloved family and friends. We extend our deepest condolences to the Garcia Family.”
The 90-year old actor-director tripped on a cable wire lying on an uneven surface while shooting an action scene in Tondo, Manila last June 8. The fall severed his neck bones resulting to coma. The actor was in coma for 12 days.
The legendary and irreplaceable Eddie Garcia has left us today, leaving an illustrious movie and TV career that spanned seven decades. But his more than 500 well-acted films make him immortal.
Rest in peace, Sir Manoy.
