FRASIER DAD MA­HONEY’S NO-SEX SE­CRET

Globe - - THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES -

BRI­TISH-BORN John Ma­honey found TV fame play­ing cranky, straight-talk­ing dad Mar­tin Crane on the hit se­ries Frasier from 1993 to 2004, but died lonely and love­less.

Ma­honey, 77, who passed away in hos­pice care in Chicago Feb. 4 from lung can­cer, brain and kid­ney dis­ease, and di­a­betes, hid his sex-free life from fans for over 30 years.

“I had can­cer of the colon and I have a colostomy. I re­ally couldn’t have sex after that,” he ad­mit­ted.

Al­though he put on a happy face, he was heart­bro­ken he’d never have a ro­man­tic part­ner in life.

“John had many friends but was very lonely,” says a friend.

Ail­ments made it im­pos­si­ble for John to have sex
