Former sexy actor Mark Joseph passes away at 63

Former sexy actor Mark Joseph has died of skin cancer at the age of 63.

According to PEP, Mark passed away at his home in Marikina City last Sunday, December 20. His real name was Ricardo Sarzuela.

Mark’s wife Miriam shared that Mark’s remains lie at Dela Paz Funeral Homes in Eulogio Amang Rodriguez Avenue, Santolan, Pasig City. His cremation is scheduled on December 24.

Miriam remembered her late husband, saying, "Sobrang sakit. I am with him for 38 years. Alam mo ba na yung 38 years na ‘yon, maghihiwalay lang kami, pinakamahaba na ang apat na oras? Napakabait niyang asawa at ama.”

"The night before he died, hindi naman siya actually nagbilin. Sabi lang niya, alam niyang mamamatay na siya. Sabi niya, ‘Alam mo, Ma, mamamatay na ako.’ Sabi ko, ‘Hindi totoo ‘yan. Hindi totoo ‘yan,'”

Mark's movie career soared in the ‘80s, wherein he was paired with various sexy stars. He was part of the films “Silip” (1985), “Hubo Sa Dilim” (1985), “Bold Star” (1986), as well as the Vilma Santos-starrer “Tagos ng Dugo,” and more.

Soon, Mark left showbiz and went to California to study at the University of the Art of Healing. He then became a chiropractor in the Philippines.
