David Ogden Stiers aka Maj Winchester RIP
« on: March 04, 2018, 13:51:15 »
The man who portrayed my favorite M*A*S*H*character has passed at the age of 75 from bladder cancer.  Stiers starred as Major Charles Winchester on the hit series M*A*S*H from 1977 to 1983.  Thank you David, for all the laughs and good memories.

That's Major Charles Emerson Winchester, III.

Also Dr Timicin on ST:NG, and the voice of Cogsworth in the animated version of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

Crud...I find it more shocking to hear tomahawk6's health.
I can always watch reruns, but I can't read tomahawk6 insights.
