“Dane passed this morning. People who watched Santa Barbara in its earliest days will remember him as Joe Perkins, a character to which he brought a quiet grace and deep, bittersweet sense of soul,” Martinez writes, according to Soap Opera Digest.

We Love Soaps says that Witherspoon was in the original cast, but was fired from the show a few months after filming started.

Martinez continues, “Dane was a most compelling man, and it must have been very hard on him to drift away from the path he first imagined. We’d do well to hold his kin in our thoughts, and imagine them finding a way to make the most of the lessons of his life.”

Wright and Witherspoon were married from 1986 until they split up two years later. Wright is now engaged to Ben Foster.
