Actor John Mahoney Died In Hospice Care Sunday
“I am sad to confirm the Sunday, February 4th death of actor John Mahoney after a short illness in Chicago, IL,” a rep for the actor told Page Six on Monday. “The family will issue a statement at a later date.”
Mahoney is probably best known for his role on “Frasier” as Martin Crane, the father of Frasier and Niles Crane. He won a SAG Award in 2000 for his performance in the role and also received two Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.
His career spanned 40 years; Mahoney recently appeared in the TV land series “Hot in Cleveland,” and he also appeared in theater productions, even claiming a Tony Award in 1986 for best featured actor in a play for his role in “The House of Blue Leaves.”
Prayers up to his loved ones. Rest in Peace.
