M*A*S*H is one of the greatest shows ever made and his performance as Col. Potter, I think is one of the things that allowed it to continue for 11 years. I watched the episode "Old Soldiers" last night, where he drank a toast to the last of a passing buddy, and with his new family in Korea, and I got a lump in my throat. Bet there wasnt a dry eye on the set that day. One of his best performances. Thank you for the memories and may you Rest in Peace good
