“David was a kind human. Someone I wish I spoke to more,” shared film director David Ferriero. “He was filled of life and incredible stories. I am grateful I got to know. I am so saddened for your loss, and the world’s loss. He was a gift to us all.”

“We loved David so much. He was one of the good guys in life,” posted Sheri Sussman of Spiral Gate Productions. ” So sending love to you and your family and am heartbroken he was the most loyal, supportive friend. I miss him already. “

“Beautiful words about David,” posted Pamela AKA Sporty Speaks in the comments section. “Sorry for your loss. You had a great brother. He was always full of fun, laughs & love. Will cherish my friendship with him. Sending Love to your family!”

No cause of death has been given. Gail succeeded Michael Dietz in the role of Joe Scanlon, a caring doctor at Genera Hospital. The late Jay Pickett played Joe’s brother, Frank Scanlon. Joe was an earnest doctor, who broke up with his girlfriend Karen (Marie Wilson) after being framed as a sex addict. Joe was cleared; he and Karen became friends but he left town before they became romantically involved again. Joe was one the show’s original GH interns who debuted on Port Charles. Many of the original seven young doctors met fateful ends but not Joe.

Port Charles original cast members Jon Lindstrom (Kevin, GH) and Kin Shriner (Scotty) posted tributes to Gail. “So saddened to learn of the passing of my former cast mate David Gail,” Lindstrom wrote on Instagram. “He was a good guy, a pleasure to be around, and I always thought he was a real talent. Sincere condolences to all his loved ones. Rest in Peace. Flight of Angels.”
