"My beautiful father, William Wintersole, passed in the stealth of the night at age 88 Tuesday 11/5/19," his daughter shared on Facebook yesterday. "I'm so glad that I got to share him on my show with my listeners. As a Hollywood actor for 60 years, he touched many [people's] lives. I did EVERYTHING I could for him... and that brings me peace. But alas... I miss him so. One love!"
An Ohio native, Wintersole was born on July 30, 1931, and began his acting career in the 1960s.
In addition to his Y&R role, Wintersole also played Ted Ballantine on General Hospital in the 1980s. Outside of daytime, Wintersole also made appearances on primetime programs including Bonanza, The Fugitive, Little House on the Prairie, Quincy, and Star Trek.
