2016 comes to an end with yet another celebrity death. William Christopher, who played Father John Patrick Francis Mulcahy has passed away at his home in Pasadena. RIP, sir. http://m.tmz.com/#2016/12/31/mash-dead-dies-william-christopher/ I loved MASH. It is easily one of my top 10 favorite shows of all time. Certainly my favorite comedy.
