RIP Father Mulcahy [William Christopher]

From tmz.com:

"MASH" star William Christopher -- who played Father John Mulcahy on the iconic show -- is the latest celebrity to die in 2016.
Christopher was part of one of the most spectacular ensembles ever on TV ... a cast which included Alan Alda, Jamie Farr, Mike Farrell, Loretta Swit and Harry Morgan.
Christopher, who played a Catholic priest but was actually Methodist in real life, auditioned for the role but went off script with a rambling ad lib. Producers loved it and hired him on one condition ... that he stay on script for the series.
He also had roles on "Gomer Pyle," "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Hogan's Heroes."
Christopher died at his Pasadena home from non-lung, small cell carcinoma. He leaves behind a wife and 2 kids.
He was 84. RIP.
2016 ... almost over.

Wayne Rogers died December 31, 2015. Weird...

Jamie Farr, watch out for December 31, 2017.

He played that character really well ... MASH was always one of my favorite shows when it was originally on ... I did a rewatch about 18 months ago and it held up well.

He played the character very well. RIP William Christopher. By the way, Rene Auberjonois (Star Trek DS9, Benson, Boston Legal) played the character in the movie.

That makes five regular cast members that have passed, if my count is correct. Hard to believe it's been more than 30 years since that show was even on the air.
