Condolences to his family. He was a wonderful actor. I so enjoyed him in “The Fly” and as Felix Leiter in the Bond films and his many guest appearances on prime time series.

May he rest in peace.

I remember him from AW. Didn’t realize he was Tucker’s dad on Y&R.

He was a wonderful addition to ANOTHER WORLD. He is sadly missed.

On another, yet related note, I heard Sally Spencer, who played MJ McKinnon on ANOTHER WORLD, just passed away, too.

Sad news week for AW fans.
