It was recently reported that Sons of Anarchy star William Lucking died at the age of 80. Lucking, who starred as old-school biker Piney Winston, reportedly died on Oct. 18 at his home in Las Vegas. Ever since the news broke, Sons of Anarchy fans have been sharing their sadness over Lucking's death.
Lucking's wife, Sigrid Insull Lucking, confirmed his death via an obituary that was posted on Facebook. The obituary read, "Although William often played tough and strong men, in his actual life he was an elegant man with a brilliant intellect who loved to argue about politics and current affairs, discuss philosophy and physics, and assert fine-pointed opinions about art and poetry." The statement continued, "He was a giant of a man with the soul of a poet, one who "contained...a tension of sorts within his being...like a boulder teetering on a hill...or a balloon expanding towards its extreme," as one friend put it."
Fans were heartbroken to hear about Lucking's passing. Shortly after the announcement, those very fans took to social media to share their condolences to Lucking's family.
