LOS ANGELES – Soft McDonald’s, the late comedian, actor, writer and “Saturday Night Live” star, has died after a personal battle with cancer, Variety has confirmed. He was 61 years old.

McDonald’s diagnosis of cancer was kept secret from the public, but he fought it for nine years.

“He was most proud of his comedy. He never wanted the diagnosis to affect the way the audience or any of his loved ones saw him. “The ideal was a pure comic. He once wrote that ‘a joke can surprise someone, it should never go awry.’ He must have never pandered. The ideal will be terribly missed. “
