MANILA, Philippines – Film director-actor Eric Quizon said his father, the king of comedy Dolphy, died peacefully Tuesday night.

“There was no pain, nothing. He just went to the light. It was so peaceful,” said Quizon.

Quizon said he told his father he loved him.

“I told him ‘I love you, daddy’ and he said he love me too,” he said.

Meanwhile, Quizon confirmed that Dolphy’s coffin is the same coffin he bought from Loyola in 1977.

“Same coffin na-upgrade lang, pinalitan lang nila ‘yung kulay, corners at handle. Imagine 30 plus years naka-display ‘yan sa Loyola,” he told
