Comedian Ritchie d’Horsie passed away on Friday evening at the age of 58 years old.
In an article from INQUIRER.net, Ritchie, whose real name is Ricardo Reyes, died at around 9:24 p.m. on Friday at home according to his niece April Alcober.
Alcober said that her uncle was diabetic and had been having a hard time breathing during the past several days. Multiple organ failure is said to be the cause of his death.
Actress-scriptwriter Bibeth Orteza said the actor had been “in and out of the hospital.” She said the last time they saw each other, he was already on a wheelchair, waiting for Vic Sotto at the Eat Bulaga studio.
RIP Ritchie! Thank you for the times you made us laugh.
