David Ogden Stiers, Major Winchester in 'M*A*S*H,' dies at 75

'M*A*S*H*' Star David Ogden Stiers Dead at 75

His agent Mitchell Stubbs confirmed the sad news on Twitter, telling fans that he had died at his home in Newport, Oregon.

Speaking on the death of his colleague, Mr Stubbs re-tweeted a message from the MKS Talent Agency account that said: '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.

Emmy Award-winning actor David Ogden Stiers has died at his OR home, following a battle with bladder cancer. His first major voiceover role in animation was as the fussy clock Cogsworth in 1991's Beauty and the Beast, which was only the first in many roles for Disney. He also had notable parts in Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Lilo & Stitch.

Kirk Cousins not expected to get franchised tagged by Washington
According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY , the Jets feel they can make the best financial offer of any of Cousins's free agent suitors. One team that absolutely would love to land Cousins but that could find itself on the outside looking in is the Denver Broncos.

Stiers is best known for playing U.S. Army Maj.

David got his start in acting in 1971 with a role in George Lucas' sci-fi thriller film THX 1138.

In all, he had more than 150 radio and television credits, with appearances on the Mary Tyler Moore Show and Perry Mason television movies.

Lawsuit: YouTube stopped hiring white and Asian males to improve corporate diversity
The lawsuit suggests that some of Google's efforts were clumsy, and may have been counterproductive. When Wilberg did not adhere to those rules, his performance reviews suffered, he alleges.

Stiers' character, while arrogant, also showed an empathy and wit his predecessor lacked.

Maybe you knew him best as the stuffy Major Charles Winchester in the TV series M*A*S*H.

I suppose it's a mixed blessing for an actor to have such an iconic role that it's the headline in every obituary written about them despite decades of stellar work afterward. As the frequent foe of the freewheeling characters played by Alan Alda and Mike Farrell, Winchester took over for Frank Burns, who had been played by Larry Linville.
