*Sadly, the end has come for actor Meshach Taylor.

He died at age 67 at his Los Angeles area home, late Saturday night, according to his agent Dede Binder.

Many may remember him from “Designing Women,” where he played assistant Anthony Bouvier.

Taylor had fought a terminal illness and faded markedly in recent days. His wife, children, grandchildren and mother surrounded him as he passed away, Binder said.

“It is with love and gratitude that we sorrowfully announce that our darling, amazingly brilliant and dynamic, Meshach, the incredible father, husband, son and friend has begun his grand transition,” the family said in a statement.
