TORONTO (AP) –  Don Harron, who entertained TV audiences in Canada
and the U.S. with his comic alter ego Charlie Farquharson and helped bring
the classic Canadian novel "Anne of Green Gables" to the stage, has died.

Harron’s eldest daughter Martha said her father died Saturday morning
surrounded by family at his Toronto home after choosing not to seek
treatment for cancer.

Harron introduced his Farquharson character — a country bumpkin from
rural Ontario — on a CBC television revue in 1952. He went on to perform
as Farquharson on the U.S. TV variety show "Hee Haw" from 1969-82.
