    Just saw this on cnn.com. Wow, did not know he was 81. Enjoyed him as the anti Marcus Welby (like Dr. Welby as well growing up.)

    Waiting for Wayne Rogers to issue a statement that he is in fact still living.

    The M*A*S*H TV people are still going strong for the most part. Larry Linville and McLean Stevenson are the only departed that I know of. And Harry Morgan is still with us at 94.

    Interesting note about Stevenson: He died of a heart attack one day, and Roger Bowen, who played Henry Blake in the movie, died of a heart attack the next day.

    Didn't Roger Bowen played the immortal Hamilton Majors Jr. on a short-lived series called "Arnie"?

    Bowen's family didn't announce his death until a week later, not wanting to get in the way of people paying their respects to McLean, IIRC.
