    RIP, Harry, you were loved in the may roles you played. I will always remember you as Sherman T. Potter. I am saddened.

    It was always Potter, part of his contracts no matter the role. Loved the character, loved the delivery.

    Just watched "Snowball Express" a couple days ago, and have always loved MASH.

    Remember "The Shootist"?

    I remember his role as the town marshal or police chief, character named Boudreaux I believe, in John Wayne's last movie "The Shootist". He wore an over-large 10-gallon hat and played comic relief and foil to the Duke's cancer-stricken character, aging gunfighter J.B. Books.

    It seems like the passing of an era

    I like Harry Morgan as an actor, whether it be a Colonel Sherman Potter, trying to hold his unit together through tough times, or whether as a two bit punk criminal....he did it with style. The world is somewhat poorer for his passing. Vale Henry.

    Harry was an awesome actor no matter what role he was given.

    He will be sorely missed for sure.

    I still love watching the MASH reruns for all the laughs and stories of each episode.
