Unhappy David Ogden Stiers (1942-2018)

http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-no...ctor_dies.html

y Eder Campuzano

The Oregonian/OregonLive

David Ogden Stiers, the actor best known for playing Major Charles Emerson Winchester III in "M*A*S*H*" and Cogsworth in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" has died. He was 75.

Stiers died peacefully at his home in Newport. He had been battling bladder cancer, his agent, Mitchell Stubbs, told The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Stiers was born in Peoria, Illinois the son of Margaret and Kenneth Stiers. He moved to Eugene while he was in high school, where he graduated from North Eugene High. He attended the University of Oregon for a time but soon left for San Francisco to pursue acting.

His first television credits include "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Charlie's Angels" and "Kojak." His voice can be heard off-screen in George Lucas' first feature film, "THX-1138."

But it wasn't until 1977 that Stiers joined the cast of CBS' military sitcom, "M*A*S*H*," after the departure of Larry Linville who played Frank Burns and starred opposite Alan Alda and Mike Farrell. Stiers was nominated for two Emmy awards for his turn as Winchester, in 1981 and 1982.

He would earn another Emmy nod in 1984 for his role as William Milligan Sloane, founder of the U.S. Olympic Committee, in the NBC miniseries "The First Olympics: Athens in 1896."

Stiers also lent his voice to eight Disney animated features, most notably as Cogsworth in 1991's "Beauty and the Beast" and including "Pocahontas," "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "Lilo & Stitch."

Stiers was also a gifted musician. He was the resident conductor of the Newport Symphony and had guest conducted for more than 70 orchestras across the world.

He continued working both in front of the camera and behind the microphone until 2015, with credits in video games, cartoons and television shows. (He appeared in a 2011 episode of "Leverage.")

Still, his most notable roles aside from his turn on "M*A*S*H*" might well be tied to his work on Disney's animated features. Facebook and other social media searches for his characters consistently contain references to Jumba Jookiba from "Lilo & Stitch:"

"Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten."

We are to the point where almost every year we have lost a MASH star since 2015.

Wayne Rogers died in December 2015. William Christopher in December 2016...on NYE when it was almost 2017 in some places of the world. And, now David in 2018.

Jeez. This is sad.

Alan Alda Remembers "M*A*S*H" Co-star David Ogden Stiers
by Lynette Rice
March 4, 2018



On Sunday, Alan Alda paid tribute to his former "M*A*S*H" co-star David Ogden Stiers, who died of cancer Saturday at the age of 75. Stiers played Maj. Charles Winchester on the CBS comedy from 1977-1983.

David Ogden Stiers. I remember how you skateboarded to work every day down busy LA streets, Alda wrote on Twitter. How, once you glided into Stage 9, you were Winchester to your core. How gentle you were, how kind, except when devising the most vicious practical jokes. We love you, David. Goodbye.

He really nailed the character of Charles. I liked Frank, too, but Charles had a lot more dimension and was really a stronger foil for Hawkeye and B.J., being just as smart as they were.

RIP Mr. Stiers, and thanks for the memories.

Yes he did. I"ll take Charles over Frank. Charles was a stronger character while Frank was a cartoon.

He was the second youngest of the cast members (born on October 31, 1942).
Gary Burghoff, who was born on May 24, 1943 was the youngest of the main cast members.
