He is probably best known for his work on the long running CBS sitcom “Designing Women,” but Meshach Taylor has a long list of movie and television credits, most recently on “Criminal Minds” with longtime friend Joe Mantegna. His agent reports that the 67 year old actor passed away at his home in California after a long struggle with cancer.
