M*A*S*H ACTOR DIES AT 82


William Wayne McMillan Rogers III
(April 7, 1933 – December 31, 2015)

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wayne Rogers, whose Trapper John McIntyre
on “M.A.S.H.” was among the most beloved characters on one of the
most popular shows of all time, died Thursday.

His publicist and longtime friend Rona Menashe stated the actor was
surrounded by family when he died in Los Angeles of complications
from pneumonia.   

Rogers was on the show for just the first three of its 11 seasons on
CBS, but his run, and his character, are especially revered by show
devotees.

An Alabama native and Princeton graduate, Rogers had parts on
many short-lived shows before “M.A.S.H.,” specializing in westerns
like “Law of the Plainsman” and “Stagecoach West.”
