Veteran Canadian actor Walter Massey dies at 85


Veteran Canadian actor Walter Massey has died in Montreal of an undisclosed illness, two weeks shy of his 86th birthday.

He has worked in theatre, movies and TV for nearly 60 years, and was a founding member of Canadian Actor's Equity.

He was also a cousin of legendary Canadian actor Raymond Massey — and the longtime partner of former CJAD personality Sharman Yarnell.

    Our heartfelt condolences to Sharman for her loss! Walter was an inspiration to say the least! The artistic community, as well as the human community, are in deep grief! Walter was an original and the mold was forgotten a LONG time ago!
