Larry Solway, a broadcaster and occasional actor, died this morning at the age of 83, according to a story by Toronto Star.

Solway passed away after suffering complications stemming from bladder cancer, the Star reports.

In the 1960s Solway hosted radio programs such as Speak Your Mind on CHUM where he talked with Torontonians about their opinions on all sorts of things. He was a panelist on the CBC television show This is the Law in the 1970s. He wrote a book, acted in films and played jazz. He was also a blogger up until his death, his most recent post being written less than six weeks ago.

"Don't you know who I used to be?" the bio of his blog jokes. With all Solway accomplished in his lifetime, it will be hard to forget.
