Former actor Rolly Quizon, son of the late comedy icon Dolphy, has passed away, a family member confirmed Thursday.

Music veteran Zsa Zsa Padilla, the partner of Dolphy of two decades until his death in 2012, confirmed the passing of Rolly on Twitter, simply saying, "RIP."

Quizon had reportedly slipped into a coma after a stroke March 9, according to PEP.ph, and had been confined at Capitol Medical Center in Quezon City.

Quizon was one of Dolphy's children -- 18 in total from different relationships -- who followed in the footsteps of the film icon. Notably, he was part of the long-running sitcom "John En Marsha" with his father, and starred opposite Vilma Santos in "Burlesk Queen."

The passing of Rolly comes only a week after the death of another son of Dolphy, Dino, who similarly joined showbiz for a time.
