David Ogden Stiers

"My dear friend and client of 30 years is gone", representative Mitchell Stubbs of Mitchell K. Stubbs & Associates said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter Saturday.

Jamie Farr, Harry Morgan, Loretta Swit, William Christopher and, from back from left, Mike Farrell, Alan Alda and David Ogden Stiers celebrate during a party on the set of the CBS program MASH, 1981.

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.

David Ogden Stiers, the actor who was best known for his role as Major Charles Winchester on the long-running TV comedy show MASH, has sadly died.

Stiers also lent his voice to several animated films, TV shows, audiobooks and video games, including Lilo & Stitch, Spirited Away, The Hunchback of Notre Dameand Pocahontas. Or as the needling dadAl Meyer in 1985's Better Off Dead.

David got his start in acting in 1971 with a role in George Lucas' sci-fi thriller film THX 1138. Charles Emerson Winchester III on M*A*S*H, has died at the age of 75.

Social media has been flooded with tributes for the star since his passing with many describing him as a "talented" actor who contributed greatly to so many people's childhood memories.

Some of his earlier television credits include The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Kojak and Charlie's Angels.

"Without it I don't think I would even be an actor". While the Larry Melville "Frank Burns" character he replaced was funnier, Stiers' "Winchester" was far more interesting.
