Actor Meshach Taylor has died of cancer at the age of 67.

Taylor, who is best known for playing lovable Anthony Bouvier on the CBS hit sitcom Designing Women, passed away late Saturday at his home in Los Angeles, his agent told People.

Taylor's family responded in a Facebook post.

“It is with love and gratitude that we sorrowfully announce that our darling, amazingly brilliant and dynamic Meshach, the incredible father, husband, son and friend has begun his grand transition,” the family wrote.

“Our friends who know and love us, please offer your prayers for his peace and blazing light as he ascends to the heavens. Those who need to call the family please do. Those who desire to post memories, we are open and graciously accepting all gestures of peace. Love, the Taylor family.”

Taylor is survived by his wife, Bianca Ferguson, and four children.
