Stubbs retweeted a message from the MKS Talent Agency account that wrote: "I am very sad to report that David died this morning March 3, 2018 peacefully at his home in Newport, Oregon after a courageous battle with bladder cancer".
'His talent was only surpassed by his heart.His talent was only surpassed by his heart'.
On "MASH" Stiers' Major Winchester was witty where Frank Burns had been vapid - with his Harvard education, a match for Alan Alda's Hawkeye in the operating room and, unlike Frank, a worthy adversary in the ongoing battle of the pranks in the Swamp.
Stubbs, tweeted that he died of bladder cancer at his home in Newport, Ore.
On "M*A*S*H", Stiers' Maj.
Retailers Tighten Gun Sale Policies
They presently have a $25.00 price target on the sporting goods retailer's stock, down from their prior price target of $33.00. Kudos to Dick's Sporting Goods' decision to refuse to sell semi-automatic weapons and large-capacity magazines in its stores.
While someone else said: "Rest In Peace, David Ogden Steirs, aka Charles Emerson Winchester, III".
His earlier television credits include The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Kojak and Charlie's Angels. Stiers' character, while arrogant, also showed an empathy and wit his predecessor lacked.
For his work on "MASH", Stiers was twice Emmy nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy or variety or music series, in 1981 and 1982, and he earned a third Emmy nomination for his performance in NBC miniseries "The First Olympics: Athens 1896" as William Milligan Sloane, the founder of the U.S. Olympic Committee. I wish people could know the handsome heart that he had.
Stiers had an extensive line of work with performances ranging from Star Trek: Next Generation to numerous voice acting performances for Disney including Governor Ratcliffe in Pocahontas, Jumba in Lilo & Stich, and most memorably, Cogsworth.
Stiers joined the M*A*S*H cast at the beginning of its sixth season and replacing Larry Linville after he left the series.
