"Ralph Waite, who was beloved to TV viewers as the ultimate father figure, John Walton, on The Waltons, has died. He passed away at midday on Thursday at his home in South Palm Desert, Steve Gordon, the accountant for the Waite family, told The Hollywood Reporter.

He was nominated for an Emmy in 1978 for his portrayal of the middle-American paterfamilias. He starred on The Waltons for nine years and directed 15 episodes. Waite also performed in the vaunted mini-series Roots, for which he received a 1977 Emmy nomination.

Prior to his role on The Waltons, Waite had been in only one other TV show, a Nichols episode.Waite also performed in the vaunted mini-series Roots, for which he received a 1977 Emmy nomination.

More recently, he appeared in Days of Our Lives and had a recurring role as Reverend Norman Balthus on HBO's Carnivale, a part befitting a man who once served as an ordained minister on Long Island. He also appeared as Jackson Gibbs in NCIS over the course of several seasons and as Hank Booth in Bones."

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

So that's number three for this round then. I guess Doris Day is safe for a while longer.

Hugs I seen him in a Walton's reunion show recently, he seemed like a really nice guy.

I kinda wish I grew up in the Walton's family, and in that era as well.

Awww, me too! I would have loved it. You're right, he really did seem like a nice guy! Hugs

You can still get a lot of the reunion shows on youtube. I think it will probably be a Walton Weekend for us.

Thanks for making this thread, I was watching mostly the Olympics earlier this evening, so I didn't know about it. :thumbup
