David Ogden Stiers

David Ogden Stiers, who brought to life several of our favorite Disney characters, has passed away at the age of 75.

According to a tweet from MKS Talent Agency, Stiers passed away “peacefully at his home in Newport, Oregon after a courageous battle with bladder cancer.”

While Stiers is widely known for his performance as Winchester in “M*A*S*H,” he had a long career in the industry.

Disney fans would recognize Stiers as the voice of Cogsworth from “Beauty and the Beast,” Jumba from “Lilo & Stitch,” Governor Ratcliffe / Wiggins from “Pocahontas” and Archdeacon from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” to name a few of many characters he portrayed.

Our sympathies go out to those who knew him.
