The actor passed away from lung cancer at age 84

M*A*S*H actor William Christopher has died at age 84, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Christopher was best known for playing the part of Father Mulcahy on the beloved series. He passed away from lung cancer at his home in Pasadena with his wife by his side.

In addition to M*A*S*H, Christopher also appeared on The Patty Duke Show and Good Times, and had a recurring role on Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. He reprised his M*A*S*H role on After MASH in the '80s.
