MANILA – (MDN National News, June 20) Eddie Garcia “Finally Bites The Dust.”
Veteran actor-director Eddie Garcia joined the Creator in Heaven at around 4:55 p.m. (June 20) after being comatose for days due to his neck fracture. He died at the age of 90.

Garcia’s death was confirmed by Dr Artemio Cabrera Salvador, Division  Head of Patients Relations Department at the Makati Medical Center thru a medical bulletin, confirming the time of his demise. 

On June 8, 2019, the multi-awarded actor accidentally stepped on a wire while having a shooting against his enemies in his new TV series with GMA 7. He fell and since then he was comatose at the hospital.

“We join the entire Filipino community in praying for the soul of Mr. Garcia and his dearly beloved family and friends,” the Makati Medical Center said in its medical bulletin.

The late Eddie Garcia (Eduardo Verchez Garcia in real life) was born in Juban, Sorsogon on May 2, 1929 with his parents Antonio Garcia and Vicenta verchez. He spent his years in his hometown in Juban but after World War II, he was commissioned as military policeman in Japan. 
Garcia was part of the United States army for three years as member of the Philippine Scouts. But in 1949, then President Elpidio Quirino disbanded said troops where Garcia belong. 

Garcia planned to re-enlist with the U.S. Army but a friend advised him and instead he joined the entertainment industry. He was convinced by a friend George Sanderson to audition with Director Manuel Conde and he was picked to star in the movie “Siete Infantes de Lara.” Garcia was finally discovered as a good actor and the rest was history.

To date, Garcia filmed more than 600 movies of various characters. He became a leading man in many movies, villain, commedian, gay, and all other character roles he portrayed with professionalism and passion in his 70 years in the movie industry.

“I played almost all the character roles in my movies. I became a leading man, villain, comedian, gay and all others. For me, it’s a job and as long as I am needed by the industry I will just be here. You just play good in your role to the best of your ability because it will be your recommendation in your next acting project,” Garcia said. ###
