John Dunsworth, aka Mr. Lahey on ‘Trailer Park Boys,’ R.I.P.
Less than two weeks after performing at the Strawberry Bar in Mandan, John Dunsworth, best known as Mr. Lahey on 'Trailer Park Boys' has died at the age of 71.
Dunsworth played Sunnyvale Park Supervisor, Jim Lahey on 'Trailer Park Boys.' His daughter, Sarah Dunsworth, confirmed the news on her Twitter feed.
Dunsworth is originally from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia and was heavily involved in community theatre for years leading up to the success of 'Trailer Park Boys,' which has been on for 11 seasons.
His comedy tour with Patrick Roach (Randy) came through Mandan on Tuesday, October 3rd. That day, I was privileged to meet and interview the very talented Dunsworth. He and Roach stayed in character as 'Mr. Lahey and Randy' throughout the interview. Off-air, he was extremely kind and very down-to-earth. RIP John F. Dunsworth.
