Christopher’s agent tells ET that the actor died in his bed
at his Pasadena, California home, where he was under hospice care. His cancer
started about a year and a half prior and as recently as a month ago, the
cancer “had gotten very bad.” He entered hospice earlier last week. He was not
in pain when he died and his wife, Barbara, was by his side.
The actor played Father John Mulcahy on M*A*S*H from
1972 to 1983 and also appeared on Hogan’s Heroes, Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.
and Murder She Wrote.
Christopher is survived by his wife and two sons John and
