In memory of those who have passed

In the 35 years since the Waltons ended it's nine season run we have lost a number of seasoned actors who portayed our favorite characters. A few actors said their final goodnight while the show was still in production as well. While this list isn't exhaustive it is current as of April 2016. It is dedicated to the memory of Earl Hamner who created The Waltons and due to his recent passing inspired the creation of this page.
