Soap opera veteran Barry Jenner, known for his roles on Days of our Lives, Another World, Dallas, Knots Landing and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has passed away.

Former daytime star Barry Jenner passed away on Monday, August 9, from acute myeloid leukemia, his wife, actress Suzanne Hunt, revealed to The Hollywood Reporter. The Pennsylvania native was 75.

Though he was best known as Admiral William Ross on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the soap opera veteran held many roles on daytime television, including Another World's Evan Webster from 1976 to 1977, Knots Landing's Jeff Cunningham in 1981, Dallas's Dr. Jerry Kenderson from 1984 to 1986, and Days of our Lives' Matt MacKenzie in 1985.

Jenner also played Lt. Lieu Murtaugh on the ABC sitcom Family Matters from 1990 to 1992 and Sheldon Kramer on Something So Right from 1996 to 1998, as well as many roles on shows like Silk Stalkings, Falcon Crest, Hart to Hart, Hotel, and more. The actor also made several appearances on the game shows Super Password and The $10,000 Pyramid.

Jenner is survived by his wife and his stepsons, Ashley and Christian. Because he served as a Los Angeles Police Department reserve officer for 21 years, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, contributions in Reserve Officer Barry Jenner's name be made to:

Los Angeles Police Reserve Foundation
6350 W. 80th St.
Los Angeles, CA 90045
Telephone: (310) 342-3044
