John Forsythe lost his nearly four-year battle with cancer Thursday. Hollywood is fondly remembering the 92-year-old Dynasty patriarch.

• Upon learning of Forsythe’s death Friday, Heather Locklear, who appeared on Dynasty, reflected on her costar’s memory. “John was a gentleman in every sense of the word,” she said in a statement. “He was a gifted actor who knew the true meaning of being gracious and kind. He will be missed.”

• His Charlie’s Angels costar Kate Jackson told PEOPLE Friday that she used to leave notes around the set for Forsythe. “I made an effort never to see him when he came in to [record] his voiceover, but I left messages for him,” she said. “And he would leave me a note saying, ‘Hi Sabrina, it’s Charlie. You’ll never catch me!’”
