I think 2 actors from "Little House" have passed away. Michael Landon, of course, passed away several years from pancreatic cancer. Also, I think the actor who played the preacher at the church at Walnut Grove recently passed away. He was in his 90s. The rest of the cast is still living.

Michael Landon, the patriarch of the show died of lung cancer in 1991. Melissa Gilbert, best known as Laura Ingalls, went on to a successful acting career and even became president of the Screen Actors Guild. Matthew Laborteaux, who played Albert, does successful voice overs for shows and cartoons. Alison Arngrim, (Nellie Oleson) has had small roles on movies.
