General Hospital News: GH Star Maurice Benard Mourns The Loss Of His Hero

General Hospital’s leading man loves to let us in on his personal life via social media platforms. Benard uses Instagram to share photos and events of his family life, outside of what we see as he portrays Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s, General Hospital.

General Hospital news reports inform fans that this time, what Maurice is letting us in on is something everyone dreads to announce. Among the happy times, the harsh reality of life hits us when we least expect it.

General Hospital news and spoilers reveal Maurice has announced the death of his hero, his father, Humberto Morales. Humberto was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, which correlated along side GH’s storyline involving Sonny’s struggling with Mike Corbin’s (Max Gail) Alzheimer diagnosis.

In his Instagram post below, Benard reflects on the impression his father has left, with words he will take with him and remember him by.

Our hearts go out to Maurice, Paula, their children, and the entire family as they say goodbye to their hero.
