    A star that burns out suddenly never dies but shines brightly in another sky bestowing its beauty, light and joy on all that live in that dimension. May you continue to shine brightly, Francesco, and may your family take comfort in being the beams of light you leave behind to continue to shine and extend your legacy for generations to come. x

  8. Janni (Tempest Storm) Says:

    This was really a shock for me, it is said that when someone dies, they visit you, well, since middle October, Francesco was constantly on my mind, and I said to myself, what is it? then it was his father, Mr. Anthony Quinn. Then I decided to search for him, on FB, and found his site, and at the same time, there a wrote that he was very missed, and that it was such a pity that he was dead. I even asked his friendship, as a tribute…He’ll always be in my heart and mind, that’s where I can see him, he was very admired, loved, and definitely was a role model…RIP, Francesco…My heart and prayers are with his family, specially his children…

  10. Roger Christensern Says:

    Very sad to hear of the death of a very nice man,
    great actor and family man. I was always pleased
    when watching a TV show and his name popped up in credits at the beginning. I knew I was in for treat – he truly was a great actor like his Dad.
    My sincere wishes and prayers go to his wife and
    loving children – your dad was a man of great talent and was always a gentleman to us fans.
