But yesterday, no internet, and not boredom but that trapped feeling I watched some old "Bones" episodes and who should appear but Ralph Waite as FBI Agent Booth's grandfather. My watching came directly on the heels of reading that he had died on Thursday (February 13, 2014) at age 85.
I was not a frequent viewer, but definitely watched Ralph Waite in his landmark television program, The Waltons.
I am, however, a frequent NCIS viewer and always found some strange tingle that Mr. Waite was Gibbs' (Mark Harmon) aging, but lovely father. The casts that shared Ralph Waite with younger television audiences honored him together. The obituary in the New York Times appears to be the most complete.
