[TV] The Waltons Star Ralph Waite Dead At 85
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.14.2014



Zap2It reports that Ralph Waite, who played John Walton on the 1970s show The Waltons, passed away yesterday at the age of 85 in his home in South Palm Desert, California.

Waite was nominated for an Emmy in 1978 for his role on The Waltons and another for his role in Roots. Before his nine-season run on The Waltons, he only had one TV credit. He's appeared in several TV shows, films, theater and politics. He most recently appeared on NCIS and Bones as Booth's grandfather Hank. He was last seen on the wedding episode.

Bones creator Hart Hanson wrote on Twitter: "RATS! RATS! Bones pal Ralph Waite has passed away. Booth's grandfather. RATS. A truly lovely man we liked a lot."

Before he got into acting, Waite was a social worker and a minister. He was born in New York on June 22, 1928 and began acting at the age of 32. He is survived by his two daughters.
