It's been all over Twitter too. I'm very sad about this news. Loved him on The Waltons and then got reattached while watching him play Father Matt.

R.I.P. I wonder if he'll be seen anymore, with Father Louis kind of taking up his place of late. Maybe his health was ill and he stepped away. Sad.

Thanks Supergirl for the avi.

Awww. :tears: I loved Father Matt. He was my favorite priest Days ever had. He was a bit of an Ericole shipper, too.

This article has more details. Looks as though it was relatively sudden.

How sad. Such a fine actor. I loved him as Father Matt, but I'll always remember him as John Walton Sr.
