Was David Gail married?

Although he starred in more than 200 episodes of the General Hospital spin-off Port Charles after leaving 90210, David lived a relatively private life, and his marital status is unknown. His sister Katie Colmenares was the one to first share the news of his death, and she didn't mention whether he was married. In her post, though, she did describe him as her "best friend" and a loyal "wingman."

"There’s barely been even a day in my life when you were not with me by my side always my wingman always my best friend ready to face anything and anyone [with] me the bears will never be the same but I will hold you so tight every day in my heart you gorgeous loving amazing fierce human being missing you every second of every day forever there will never be another," she wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a photo of the two of them embracing.

No cause of death was disclosed in Katie's Instagram post, which has instead left many to speculate about exactly what happened to him. It's unclear whether she'll reveal more details about what happened to him in the future, or whether we'll never know exactly what his cause of death was.

"I was working in the casting department at Growing Pains and I remember his casting! And I was really happy for his subsequent roles in 90210 and Savannah. I remember him as a sweet guy and I’m so sorry to hear this sad news," one person wrote in the comments under Katie's post.
