RIP David Ogden Stiers
October 31, 1942 – March 3, 2018
From M*A*S*H, my favorite childhood TV show.
I’d also like to add that David Ogden Stiers was closeted until he was 66 years old. He came out in 2009 in the hope that he could have a public relationship with a romantic partner and finally felt it was safe to do so. Fear of professional repercussions made him hide his true self for nearly the whole of his life. It’s rather heart breaking when you consider that he had less than a decade to live his truth.
