As far as I know, the guy that played Jon Boy is still alive. Ralph Waite played the dad on the Walton's. One of the best shows ever.

I had not heard that Ralph Waite had passed away until I read it here. I loved the show growing up and when my kids were young, we watched it every night in reruns. When my son and daughter were about ages 3 and 5 we went to a Walton reunion near Charlottesville, VA where they have a museum and you can see the house they really grew up in. We got to see many of the actors and actresses but not John-Boy.
LEKESHIA35 -- John Boy didn't die -- it was the father.
I still love that show. Prayers to Ralph's family --he too reminded me of my Dad. Great actor. Really sad to hear this.
Yeah, this last week with Sid Caesar, Shirley Temple and Ralph Waite God's needing some fun entertainment ha? :)~ I always loved John Sr. I watch reruns of The Waltons online or Hallmark Channel! May the families have peace in this difficult time!

I'm so sad to hear of the passing of John Walton (Ralph Waite) I loved the show and he and Livy were always so sweet with one another.... They say it happens in 3's we lost Shirley Temple, Sid Ceasar and now Ralph Waite all in one week, heaven is full of talent.... RIP Mr. Walton, god bless your family!
