Veteran comedian Palito has succumbed to a lung conditon this morning at the Philippine General Hospital.

Palito, or Reynaldo Hipolito in real life is known for his small frame and his various movies in the 80s and 90s. He is also one of the few sidekicks of comedy king, Dolphy.

Lately, he suffered an unquestionable illness as he was sent to a hospital in Imus, Cavite. In order to solve the problems, Palito was then moved to the Phil. General Hospital as his son requested help for his weak father via a message in Facebook, a social networking site:

“Legendary actor/musician, Palito, is currently confined in a hospital in Imus, Cavite and he badly needs financial assistance in order to fully diagnose his condition. He is in need of a CT Scan ASAP. Please contact us at 09163451874 if you wish to donate. Any amount will help him greatly. Please share this post with your contacts. Thank you so much.”

-Mark Escueta of Rivermaya

And Palito will be always remembered by everybody.

    RIP – Palito, 76, made a living as a living corpse. In over 70 films, he was often cast as a skeleton or zombie, but eventually got lead roles in Rambuto, a Rambo spoof, and James Bone, where he plays an emaciated version of 007. http://urdead2me.wordpress.com/2010/04/12/rip-palito/
