Actor James Rebhorn passed away on Friday after losing his long battle with melanoma. He died peacefully at his home in South Orange, New Jersey at the age of 65. He is survived by his wife Becky and two daughters Hannah and Emma. They are planning a religious service to take place in New Jersey.

Leading Artist Dianne Busch had this to say about the actor.

"He was an absolute joy to work with. He was very funny and was warm. He was drawn to projects with a social conscience. One of his favorite movies that he did was Lorenzo's Oil, because it made a difference. He had a very strong faith and loved his family. His family was extremely important to him and I saw him make career sacrifices for them."

He had a long history in television, but he most recently appeared in Showtime's drama Homeland and USA's White Collar.

Here is a statement made by the USA network.
