There are many things that are enviable about the life of Frasier actor John Mahoney, who died this week at the age of seventy seven.

The 77-year-old is best known for his role as Frasier's dad in the hit 90's sitcom.

Mahoney picked up a Screen Actors Guild award in 2000 for portraying Martin on Frasier, and was also nominated for two Emmy Awards and two Golden Globes during his career.

After Frasier he continued to appear in American TV shows and films including In Treatment, Burn Notice, and Hot in Cleveland.

The stock climbed $14.85, or 9.1%, to $178.02 in pre-market trading Wednesday after declining 1.4% on the previous day. Shares in Wynn Resorts , worth around $17 billion, have tumbled almost 20 percent since the Journal report on Jan 26.

After a decade of theatrical roles and small parts in films and television, Mahoney was cast in Frasier as Martin Crane, a widowed ex-police officer whose cranky, blue-collar manner was often in comic conflict with the cultured pretensions of his sons, a pair of psychiatrists played by Grammer and David Hyde Pierce.

The Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago said Mahoney, who was a member of the ensemble for 39 years, died Sunday due to complications from cancer while in hospice care.

Mahoney was born in Blackpool. He served the USA army for three years, and said it helped him get away with the accent.

Peri Gilpin, who played Roz, the producer of Frasier's radio show, tweeted a picture of Mahoney singing at her wedding.

Nelson Chamisa as the acting President of the party by operation of the Constitution until the President's return. MDC's Gutu said there were no divisions within the party and accused the ruling-Zanu PF of spreading the rumours.

Mahoney's role in Fraiser got him a lot of recognition, but he eventually got exhausted of travelling from Chicago to Los Angeles. He went to Chicago to study acting. Fellow Steppenwolf actor Gary Sinise said it was "a great pleasure to know him and work with him".

His Broadway debut, as Artie Shaughnessy in John Guare's comedy The House of Blue Leaves (Plymouth theatre, 1986-87), won him a Tony award. "Remember him well", Gilpin said.

He also lent his voice to a number of animated projects, including Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Iron Giant, and Antz.
