This is a pretty good write up on his most famous character.

Oh, so sorry to hear about that. Gerard "Gerry" Parkes will always be remembered to me as Doc on "Fraggle Rock". (And of course, he reprised the role in the 1987 classic TV special, "Muppet Family Christmas".) He was always such a kindly, cheerful fellow on the show.
May God bless and comfort his family in this sad time. Crying or Very sad

I had no idea he was in "The Boondock Saints" movies. Interesting. (I haven't seen them but I've heard a lot about them due to another of my fandoms crossing paths with it- Sean Patrick Flannery starred in those movies, and of course, he also starred as Young Indiana Jones on "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles".)
So he was an Irish-Canadian actor, eh? I see that he appeared in both "The Beachcombers" and "The Littlest Hobo"- two great Canadian sitcoms!
Well, his work will live on and he will be remembered there, definitely. I may have to pull out my Fraggle Rock DVDs soon and watch some episodes in tribute to him. Cool
