Stiers joined the cast of M*A*S*H in 1977, playing Winchester as an arrogant aristocrat and surgeon who filled a major void in the show after the departure of the Frank Burns character.

In fact, Stiers did his work so well on the show that he earned himself two Emmy nominations for the series!!!

Long after the show, Stiers enjoyed a successful career as a voice actor, as well, appearing as characters in movies like Beauty and the Beast, and Lilo & Stitch.

In 2009, he came out publicly as gay, too, saying he was no longer afraid to hide it.

Here he is, in his most memorable role (below):

So sad to see him go.
