MASH” star William Christopher — who played Father John Mulcahy on the iconic show — is the latest celebrity to die in 2016.

Christopher was part of one of the most spectacular ensembles ever on TV … a cast which included Alan Alda, Jamie Farr, Mike Farrell, Loretta Swit and Harry Morgan.

Christopher, who played a Catholic priest but was actually Methodist in real life, auditioned for the role but went off script with a rambling ad lib.  Producers loved it and hired him on one condition … that he stay on script for the series.

                   He also had roles on “Gomer Pyle,” “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Hogan’s Heroes.”

Christopher died at his Pasadena home from non-lung, small cell carcinoma.  He leaves behind a wife and 2 kids.
