Gammon died Friday surrounded by his family at his daughter's home in Costa Mesa, where he and his wife, Nancy, had been living. He had cancer of the adrenal glands and the liver.
Gammon may be best known for his role as Lou Brown, manager of the hapless Cleveland Indians in the 1989 comedy 'Major League' and its 1994 sequel. He stood out with key roles in many films including 'Urban Cowboy,' 'The Milagro Beanfield War,' 'Leaving Normal,' 'Ironweed,' 'Silverado' and 'Cold Mountain.'"
