COMEDIAN GEORGIE QUIZON
FOUND DEAD AT EDSA
Quezon City, Aug. 12, 1998 - Comedian Dolphy's younger brother Georgie Quizon was found dead in front of Camp Crame on EDSA, and there are conflicting reports as to the cause of his death.
A sister initially told TV reporters that the 60-year-old Georgie was on his way to see German Moreno and was probably waiting for a ride when he had an epileptic seizure and fell on the ground while it was raining heavily. The Inquirer, however, reports that a police blotter indicated that Georgie was the victim of hit and run.
"His face was barely recognizable, and he was covered with mud. Bystanders were probably afraid to help him when his body started to twist and shake during his epileptic attack," Ms. Quizon said.
Dolphy was still in his Makati Medical Center hospital room, recovering from a double heart bypass when informed of his younger brother's death. He was said to have dried after hearing the news, but his heart was able to take the news.
Georgie Quizon was, like Dolphy, a former vaudeville artist who later became a Sampaguita Pictures contract star. He also acted in many of Dolphy's movies.
