Read on his wife Toni Bua's facebook page. Gene Bua, best known as Bill Prentiss on "Love of Life" from 1967 to 1971 passed away this week. He also played "Dr. Robert Monday" on "How to survive a marriage" and "Steve Slade" during the last year of "Somerset".

So sad to hear this. Bill and Tess were quite the super couple on LOL in a pre-super couple era.

May he rest in peace.

That's a great clip, haha, I guess the whole "guitar guy" thing goes back much further than those annoying dudes in high school and college. :P

It was rumored that Bill and Tess were going to be given their own LOL spinoff, LMFAO.

So sorry to hear this. I remember him from Love of Life and Somerset, and of course his marriage to Toni.

I'm sorry to hear this. They were one of the first big supercouples on soaps, and probably one of the first who were believable as young characters.
