RIP To Cowboy Actor Harry Carey, Jr.

The British newspaper the Daily Mail offers a good piece on the death of actor Harry Carey, Jr.

The Daily Mail also offers some good photos of the old cowboy. 

Harry Carey appeared in several of John Ford's classic Western films, appearing alongside John Wayne, Ward Bond, Pedro Armendariz, Ben Johnson and the other great actors in Ford's so-called stock company.

Carey, a World War II U.S. Navy veteran, also appeared in one of my favorite more recent Westerns, Tombstone.

By all accounts, Carey was a fine man as well as a fine actor.

Western character actor Harry Carey, Jr. died on Thursday aged 91. 

His daughter Melinda confirmed that he passed away from natural causes surrounded by family at a hospice facility in Santa Barbara, California. 

She said on Friday: 'He went out as graceful as he came in.'
