'Sons of Anarchy' Star William Lucking Dead at 80

William Lucking, one of the main characters in "Sons of Anarchy", has passed away at the age of eighty.
Lucking, who was the role of Piney Winston, a biker on the show, died last month at his home in Las Vegas. Sigrid, his wife of 25-years, wrote a obituary that called Lucking a "giant" with the soul and mind of a poet.

Although it is not clear how Lucking died at the moment, "SoA" fans will always remember Piney as the oldest member of the biker club and its most senior advisor. Piney was a pilot for the show and carried an oxygen tank. He seemed to have slowed down somewhat since the series began.

Lucking's career began in the late 1960s and spanned both film and TV. He played roles such as Faye Dunaway's "Oklahoma Crude" and the original Colonel on NBC's The A-Team during the 1980's.

Lucking has left behind his wife, two daughters and grandkids, as well as a sister.

His funeral request for fans is to "toast his memory and celebrate the legacy of his father."
