Ah! How sad! I loved his work.
Good for his family in keeping this private for so long. Based on my own experience, 4 months is about how long it takes to quit crying randomly. :(

He was great in all his roles but my favorite was Hedley Lamarr. I can't imagine another actor who was better suited for that role. He will be missed. :(
