Wilmer Valderrama (Nick Torres) also said farewell to his former co-star. “David, it was an enormous honor to share the screen with you. Your expertise and ability to effortlessly take each of us on a journey through your art will be felt for the rest of our lives. My friend, I will miss you.”
“David lived a great, full, long life,” longtime NCIS star Mark Harmon stated earlier this week. I was in awe when I first met him, and everyone on the performance was proud to have toed the line with him. My heartfelt sympathies to Katherine and his family.”
