The actor was also a talented musician - he was a resident conductor for the Newport Symphony in Oregon. The Newport Symphony made a statement after hearing devastating news about the death:
All of us at the NSO are heartbroken. David Ogden Stiers was a generous, loving, and inspirational friend and pillar to our orchestra, and, indeed, to all of us individually. Our orchestra would not be here if it weren't for his great support and inspiration over three decades. His depth of musical feeling, love for our musicians, and charisma made his performances soar when he was on our podium. We will all work to keep David's spirit alive in all of our performances.
David Ogden Stiers had more than 150 film and television appearances, including shows like The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Frasier. His immense talent and kind heart will never be forgotten.
