GH Vet David Groh Passes away
Bobbie Spencer's first husband was D.L. Brock.
David Groh, better known to General Hospital fans from the 80’s as D.L. Brock, died in Los Angeles on February 12 from kidney cancer. He was 68.
Groh played the contract role of Bobbie’s abusive husband from 1983-1985. (His soap career began much earlier, however, in that he was on “Dark Shadows” in 1966.) At one of the character’s many low points, he held Bobbie and his daughter Terri at gunpoint. Ultimately it was one of his mortal enemies, Ginny Blake, who ended up killing D.L. in self defense.
Nighttime TV watchers will remember Groh as a much nicer character - that of Rhoda Morgenstern's lovable husband Joe on the "Rhoda" show from 1974-1977. In 1978, he made his Broadway debut in Neil Simon's "Chapter Two." In the years that followed, he also appeared in New York productions of "Be Happy for Me," "Road Show," and "The Twilight of the Golds." Other TV work included "Melrose Place," "LA Law," "Murder, She Wrote" and "X-Files."
Soaps.com extends its sincere condolences to David's wife Kristen and son Spencer.
