Soapdom is saddened to report that Ralph Waite, known to Days of Our Lives viewers as Father Matt, died at his Palm Desert home on February 13. He was 85.

According to the Desert Sun, Waite's longtime friend Jerry Preece arrived at his home at 1 pm and found ambulances there. Waite's wife Linda told him she believed her husband had passed away. Preece attributed his death to "a tired heart."

Waite was best known for his role as John Walton Sr. on the 1970s series The Waltons. Of late, he recurred as Mark Harmon's character's father, Jack Gibbs, on NCIS as well as on Days.

Soapdom offers condolences to his family and Days of our Lives.
