Maurice Benard pays tribute to his dad 

Over on Instagram, Maurice Benard revealed the news about his father’s passing. 

The General Hospital star began his caption, “As I lay here with a heavy heart but no anxiety,??Knowing I will never see my hero again.”

He continued, “My dad was one of a kind no one like him, those who knew him know what I’m talking about. When I was a little boy I wanted to be him, nobody was more proud of me than my father, and boy did he love General Hospital(not Carly and Jason as a couple)? my dad always said in Spanish what’s going to happen it’s gonna happen don’t worry. Say hi to everybody DAD maybe you can even sing a song with Frank Sinatra.”

Maurice shared his dad with everyone he came into contact with. From the set at General Hospital to the appearances he did, the two were hysterical together.
