General Hospital is famous for many deaths over the years, but some are especially memorable, like that of Stone Cates, and still impact the soap today. Now, check out 10 deaths that rocked Port Chuck and are still on people’s minds today on ABC daytime.
#1 The Tragic Death of Stone Cates on General Hospital
Just about every GH fan knows the tragic story of Michael “Stone” Cates (Michael Sutton). Stone was Robin Scorpio’s (Kimberly McCullough) boyfriend back in the 1990s. Sadly, Stone tested positive for HIV on General Hospital. However, the first test was negative, and Stone Cates and Robin got intimate. Unfortunately, she contracted the disease as well. By the time Stone died, he was blind.
Then, Stone asked Robin to stand in the light of the window and was able to see her one last time before passing away on GH. Stone Cates’ death devastated many, but it raised awareness about HIV and AIDS. Also, Stone’s the reason the Nurses Ball began to raise money for AIDS awareness. Now, Robin still lives a full and healthy life, and Stone’s spirit is still alive on General Hospital.
#2 What Happened to Georgie on GH?
Some General Hospital fans wonder how Georgie Jones died. Remember, Georgie was Maxie Jones’ (Kirsten Storms) sister. So, her parents are Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner) and Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner). Sadly, Georgie’s young life was tragically cut short by the Text Message Killer.
GH viewers may recall Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) came across her strangled to death in the park. Of course, her death hit her family incredibly hard on General Hospital. But, her memory still lives on, and her ghost made a few appearances. Georgie even talked Maxie out of suicide once on GH.
#3 How Did Courtney Matthews Die on General Hospital?
Another tragic death on GH is that of Courtney Matthews (Alicia Leigh Willis). Remember, she was Mike Corbin’s (then Ron Hale) daughter. Courtney was pregnant with Nikolas Cassadine’s (then Tyler Christopher) son Spencer Cassadine (now Nicholas Bechtel). But, she had a deadly virus on General Hospital.
Then, it sent her into labor, and she died before she could even hold Spencer on GH. Years later, her spirit came to visit her son after he was in a fire. Of course, everyone still misses Courtney. And Mike worries he may forget her due to his Alzheimer’s, which is in the final stages on General Hospital.

#5 Remember Sabrina Santiago’s General Hospital Death?
Another GH fan-fave that died well before her time was Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo). Years ago, Sabrina was a student at General Hospital and eventually became a nurse. Also, she was engaged to Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson).

#6 How Did Faith Rosco Die on GH?
Some General Hospital followers still wonder how Faith Rosco (Cynthia Preston) met her end. Recall, Faith was quite a bad girl and committed a ton of crimes on GH. She worked with AJ Quartermaine (Sean Kanan) to kidnap Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) kids.

#7 The End of Silas Clay on General Hospital
The death of Silas Clay (Michael Easton) is another one for the books on GH. Remember, he was Nina Reeves’ (then Michelle Stafford) husband. And, had an affair with Ava. Also, he was a suspect in Nina’s murder. However, she was still alive and left comatose by her mother, Madeline Reeves (Donna Mills).

#8 Connie Falconeri’s Tragic End on GH
A long-time General Hospital fave is Connie Falconeri (Kelly Sullivan). Remember, she was Olivia Falconeri’s (Lisa LoCicero) cousin — and Sonny’s childhood sweetheart. Eventually, they rekindled their romance, but there was danger everywhere.
She was shot on their wedding day because she knew too much. In the end, it came out that Ava killed Connie at Crimson magazine. Of course, she did it to protect her brother Julian Jerome (William deVry) on General Hospital. But, Connie’s murder still hangs over her head today on GH.
#9 Nathan’s Death a Tragedy on General Hospital
A more recent death that still looms over the town on GH is Nathan West’s (Ryan Pavey). Nathan was Maxie’s husband and a police officer for the PCPD. Also, he was the son of Cesar Faison (Anders Hove). When that news came to light, Nathan lured his father out to capture him on General Hospital.
Sadly, it’s the reason Faison shot Nathan right in front of Maxie, who was pregnant with their child on GH. Of course, Maxie was beside herself and didn’t move on for quite some time. But, he is still in her heart and lives on in their son James on General Hospital.
