Meshach Taylor of ‘Designing Women’ dead at 67

meshach_taylorIn case you missed this (as we did), CNN reported that actor Meshach Taylor, best known for his Emmy-nominated role as Anthony Bouvier on the CBS sitcom Designing Women (1986) passed away June 28, 2014. He is also known for his portrayal of Hollywood Montrose, a flamboyant window dresser in Mannequin (1987).

Taylor had fought a terminal illness and faded markedly in recent days. His wife, children, grandchildren and mother surrounded him as he passed away.

“It is with love and gratitude that we sorrowfully announce that our darling, amazingly brilliant and dynamic, Meshach, the incredible father, husband, son and friend has begun his grand transition,” the family said in a statement.

RIP Meshach. :(
