What a sad time for the soaps.
On November 16, All My Children star David Canary passed away at age 77 from natural causes. David starred on the series as twins Adam and Stuart Chandler for 27 years.
Wow. What a loss for the acting community.
Kelly Ripa, who once co-starred alongside Canary as his “TV daughter”, tweeted:
So sad to learn of the passing of the great David Canary. A incredibly talented actor. A wonderful man. I was lucky to know you.

Aw. What a wonderful pair.
Sarah Michelle Gellar also relayed her condolences, saying:
So sweet. It sounds like D.C. was beloved by all.
The soap icon leaves behind his wife M of thirty-three years Maureen and his son, Christopher, his daughter, Kathryn, his grandson, Donovan Canary, and his brother John.
For those who are feeling generous, donations in David’s memory can be made out to the Alzheimer’s Association by visiting alz.org “David Canary Memorial Fund.”
Rest easy, Mr. Canary.
