Sumakabilang buhay na ang acclaimed playwright at stage director na si Floy Quintos ngayong Sabado ng umaga, April 27, sa edad na 63.

Ang malungkot na balita ay kinumpirma ng kanyang pamangkin na si Celina Quintos sa post nito sa Facebook.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I, on behalf of my family, announce that Floy Quintos, esteemed playwright and director, but more importantly beloved brother, son, uncle, cousin, nephew, and friend, has returned to the arms of the Lord,” pahayag ni Celina.

“He passed suddenly in the ER from a heart attack this morning,” patuloy niya.

“Our family is still making arrangements for the wake at Arlington Memorial Chapels, and will post updates on the date and time once we have them. We ask for your prayers, love, and support as we navigate this tremendous loss,” she said.

“Floy Quintos was a beacon of Philippine culture and the arts, but also shone so much firelight for the people closest to him. The country, the world, and our home are much darker with this light snuffed out too soon. We hope to share our light with each other through this time,” saad pa ni Celina.

Sa mga hindi nakakaalam, si Direk Floy ang nagsulat ng mga Palanca Award-winning plays tulad ng Fluid, Evening at the Opera, Suor Clara, Collection, atbp.

Naging direktor din siya ng talk show na “Startalk” ng GMA-7 at nagsulat ng script ng mga pelikulang Darna! Ang Pagbabalik, Waiting at Koronang Itim.
