Mr. Lahey was, by far, my favorite character on the show and from what I've seen, Mr. Dunsworth was a good man in real life.
I really hate this.

 

I'm with the others on here, he was the scene stealer! LMAO

At least he had a really good run and went out on top of his game!

 

O my gosh I just heard and I'm so saddened...I love this guy...He was hysterical...Thank you Mr. Dunsworth wherever you are!!!

 

He was the funniest character on TPB!!!! He was a great, comedic talent, and will be greatly missed. ♡♡♡♡♡

 

He was such a good actor people actually believed he was an alcoholic at some point in his life.

 

He steals the show on TPB. Damn this is sad news. RIP Mr. Dunsworth. Thanks for the laughs.

 

So long, Mr. Lahey........you WERE the liquor.

 

"I am the liquor"

I got to see the Trailer Park Boys road show in Charleston, SC last year. Lahey and Randy weren't there but they showed them on video. One of the best comedy series of all time. RIP Jim. Enjoy your time at the big trailer park in the sky.

 

Started his career as an actor when he was pushing 50, and turned out to be really, really good at it. Never to late to start something new and bring joy to others. Thanks for the laughs Jim, your performances will still be bringing laughs long after we're all gone.

Thanks for the laughs.

 

The day the liquor died :(

 

RIP to a really funny and talented actor

 

Best wishes for a speedy recovery

 

Dark day at the trailer park.

 

Trailer Park Boys without Jim Lahey will be like a day without drinky poo. What a great talent John Dunsworth was. We loved him in this house. All TPBs fans in Wisconsin are rueing that we missed seeing Lahey in the flesh when he came to Milwaukee in August. Our condelences to his family.

 

It's such a sad day. TPB is one of my favorite shows. And John Dunsworth was such a staple of the show. He will be miss. Raise a bottle to Jim Lahey. Let the liquor do the talking one more time.

 

John F. Dunsworth was an amazing talent. The show will never be the same without him. He will be greatly missed.

 

That is such a bummer, what a genuinely funny actor. He will be missed, I really hope the guys will be able to pull off / incorporate the passing of John into TPB without hurting the show. The passing of original, or just any great characters, is especially devastating. RIP MR LEAHY!!!

 

Greatest comedy ever...show won't be the same. He will be missed!

 

Sad. Such a loss.

 

And to the other members ricky bubbs julisn and randy my condolances and to mr Lahey s daughter sarah as well

 

He will always be remembered and his words of wisdome were priceless
