ET breaks the sad news that John Forsythe, who starred on "Dynasty" and lent his voice to "Charlie's Angels," has passed away. He was 92.

Forsythe died of complications from pneumonia in Santa Ynez, Calif. on Thursday.

"…He died as he lived his life... with dignity and grace, after a year-long struggle with cancer," his family tells ET.

The family says there will be no public service for the late star, and they request that those wishing to honor his memory make donations to the American Cancer Society in lieu of flowers.

Forsythe won two Golden Globes portraying patriarch Blake Carrington on "Dynasty." He also voiced the mysterious Charles Townsend (who memorably made his presence felt via speaker phone) on "Charlie's Angels."

In addition to the numerous acting credits he amassed over his career -- which spanned over six decades -- Forsythe was a spokesperson and sponsor of the World Wildlife Fund. He also supported the American Cancer Society and the United Nations Association.

He is survived by his family including his wife, Nicole, his son and daughter-in-law, Dall and Ana Marie Forsythe, his two grown daughters, Page Courtemanche and Brooke Forsythe, as well as six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
