JR……No more

Famously Known as J.R Ewing of the 80’s hit series Dallas, Larry Martin Hagman (September 21, 1931 – November 23, 2012) died at Dallas Hospital as a result of complications from cancer. He shot to television superstardom in 1978 playing the role of the scheming Texas oil tycoon. He was the villain viewers loved to hate. In real life, he suffered several health scares, including a bout with cirrhosis and a 16-hour liver transplant in 1995 that helped save his life. Last year, he revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer, but at the time, Hagman called it “a very common and treatable form.”

He is survived by his wife, a son, a daughter and five grandchildren.
