An award winning actor has just passed away. According to reports, Donald Moffat has died at the age of 87.

"Moffat’s daughter, Lynn, told The New York Times her father died in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. The actor was born in the United Kingdom in 1930 and moved to the U.S. when he was 26 years old. Lynn Moffat told The New York Times her father was 'anxious' to leave the U.K.," according to Fox News.

"Moffat had success on Broadway and was nominated for two Tony Awards for 'Right You Are [If You Think You Are]' and 'The Wild Duck.' He appeared on television in 'One Life to Live,' 'Logan’s Run' and 'The New Land.' His best-known movie roles include the 1982 horror classic 'The Thing' and 'The Right Stuff,'" according to reports.

"RIP Donald Moffat, one of the great character actors of the cinema. He made any ensemble cast better with his stentorian presence. I loved as Garry in John Carpenter's THING, and his Lyndon Johnson in THE RIGHT STUFF is one of the funniest film portrayals of a president," wrote Robert Morgan on Twitter.

Moffat is survived by his family, including his wife, four daughters, 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Please join us in praying for them as they mourn his loss. We ask for God's grace to surround and comfort them through the coming weeks.
