Western character actor Harry Carey, Jr. died on Thursday aged 91. His daughter Melinda confirmed that he passed away from natural causes surrounded by family at a hospice facility in Santa Barbara, California.

She said on Friday: ‘He went out as gracefully as he came in.’

Carey was a veteran actor with many roles to his name, including Westerns such as 3 Godfathers and Wagon Master.
Carey’s career spanned more than 50 years and included such John Ford classics as She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, The Searchers and The Long Gray Line.
Later in life, he appeared in the movies Gremlins and Back to the Future Part III.
Carey, who was born Henry George Carey, is survived by his wife Marilyn Fix, who he wed in 1944, a son, and two daughters.
The late star also has three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Carey appeared in many of John Ford’s films, largely due to the boyish looks and horse-riding skills that made him perfect Western material.
