We are so sad to report that actor Meshach Taylor has passed away at the age of 67. Meshach has acted on a number of shows including “Designing Women” and Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana” and “Jessie.”
Meschach passed away last night while under hospice care. He was surrounded by his family at the time. It has been reported that the actor was battling cancer.
Here is a note from his family:
“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. 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.”
“Jessie” actor Cameron Boyce remembered his co-star, writing:
