On Sunday, June 22 from 2pm-8pm, the INSP network will be honoring everyone’s favorite father with a special Sunday marathon on what would have been his 86th birthday.  

 

From NCIS to The Waltons, Waite was considered the father of Hollywood, having portrayed the ultimate patriarchal figure on the small screen. Even in his later years, Waite continued on with his career, portraying Father Matt on Days of Our Lives from 2009-2013. He portrayed many roles on television and the big screen for nearly 5 decades, with guest-starring appearances on popular shows such as Bones, CSI and Grey’s Anatomy.  But it was the role of John Walton that will forever be remembered in the hearts of so many viewers who were loyal to this long-time program.

INSP was honored to conduct several of Waite’s last interviews.  These will be featured during the June 22nd special tribute.  For a sneak peak, visit: www.moments.org/ralph-waite-means/
