Actor turned investment guru Wayne Rogers has passed away from complications of pneumonia at the age of 82.
Rogers is, of course, best remembered for his portrayal of Dr. “Trapper” John McIntyre during the first three seasons of M*A*S*H before departing the series in 1975.
Some of Rogers’ TV credits prior to M*A*S*H include Wanted: Dead or Alive, Stagecoach West, Gunsmoke and The Fugitive. Following his departure from M*A*S*H, Rogers starred in the short-lived series City of Angels and had recurring roles on shows like House Calls and Murder, She Wrote.
In later years, Rogers enjoyed a second career as an investor and money manager. Rogers would become well known to Fox News viewers on programs such as Cashin’ In where he would dispense financial advice. In addition to business, Rogers often commented on political matters and was particularly critical of President Obama and even called for his impeachment.
I remember Rogers appearing in a number of commercials on behalf of the Unity Church and would like to leave you with one of them.
