    Most memorable recent role for him is Frank the rescue helicopter pilot in Cliffhanger.
    Nice video although never watched the Waltons and I'm sure I seen him in a role as a villain tearing a strip of someone but like Frank will always think of him a warm father figure type.

    By a strange coincidence , I was watching Cliffhanger on ITV2 last night. He's rather good in it, and gets one of the most memorable scenes in the last act.
    RIP Mr Waite
