Sons of Anarchy Star William Lucking Has Died

His obituary read, "Although William often played toughs and strongmen, 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," according to People

"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," the obituary continued.

William Lucking was best known for his role as "Piney Winston" from Sons of Anarchy. May he rest in peace.
