Known for his many roles with the Walt Disney Company, actor Kevin Corcoran, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 66 from cancer.

Born on June 10, 1949, in Santa Monica, the Disney Legend grew up on-screen in front of many. One of his most famous roles was that of Arliss Coates, the youngest son in Old Yeller. In addition, Corcoran could be seen on the Mickey Mouse Club as the character named Moochie, appearing in three serials. Walt Disney liked him so much that he had a special role written for him.

Other films Corcoran took part in were The Shaggy Dog, Pollyanna and Swiss Family Robinson. He also had smaller roles in films such as Babes in Toyland, Bon Voyage!, The Mooncussers, Savage Sam and A Tiger Walks, according to D23.

Corcoran attended California State University, Northridge, earning a theater arts degree.

After he retired from acting, he became assistant director for television shows such as Murder, She Wrote and Baywatch. He was also a producer for Return From Witch Mountain and Sons of Anarchy.

In 2006, Corcoran was inducted as a Disney Legend.

He will be missed and our thoughts are with his family at this time.
