Actor John Aylward, best known for his roles on “ER” and “The West Wing,” has died. He was 75.

Aylward landed his debut onscreen role in the television film “The Secret Life of John Chapman” in 1976. He went on to appear in the dramedy series “Northern Exposure,” as well as films “Seven Hours to Judgment” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III” before scoring the role of Dr. Donald Anspaugh in the medical drama “ER.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The Seattle-born actor also made it to the White House in the final season of the Aaron Sorkin political drama “The West Wing,” playing Barry Goodwin, former DNC chair and head of transition. Aylward’s last role was Freddie Laffter in the USA Network crime drama “Briarpatch.”

According to Aylward’s agent, Mitchell Stubb, the actor died in his Seattle home of natural causes on Monday.

“John was a wonderful actor and a great friend to many,” Stubbs said in a statement. “He was proud of his film and television work, although his life in the theatre was where he was the happiest.”

One Twitter user commented that he’d met Aylward randomly, and that he remembered the encounter fondly.

”Randomly met him in a hotel bar in Orlando many years ago, had a delightful conversation that I remember to this day due to a bit of a mistaken identity,” Steph Ger wrote. “Thank you #JohnAylward you will be missed.”

Another Twitter user, Barzin Akhavan, wrote, “He might not have been famous. But he influenced a GENERATION of actors. RIP John Aylward”
