So sad. TV icon Larry Hagman lost his life on Friday Nov. 23 from complications of lung cancer.

Larry Hagman, a TV actor best known for his role as J.R. Ewing on Dallas, died on Friday Nov. 23.

Larry is survived by his wife of 54 years years, Maj Hagman, their two children and their grandchildren, according to People.

“When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones,” his family said in a statement to the Dallas Morning News. “It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time.”

“This is so sad. Larry was really someone who was loved by everyone,” Larry’s agent Joel Dean tells People. “Me especially. He was the most loving, wonderful, generous man. And he was a true trouper.”

In 2011, Larry announced he was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer. At the same time, Larry started filming the TNT reboot of Dallas, which is currently filming its second season. The show originally aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991.

“Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most,” added the family statement.

Dallas costars Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy were by Larry’s side when he passed away on Nov. 23.

Our thoughts go out to Larry’s family and friends during this difficult time.

R.I.P Larry. I loved you in I Dream Of Jeannie. But I also loved you in Dallas the old and the new. Wonder how they will write you (JR) out of new Dallas. You will be sadly missed. Dallas won’t seem the same without you.
