WILTON, CONN. -- David Canary, an Emmy-award winning veteran TV actor and longtime Wilton resident, died Nov. 16. He was 77.

Canary, perhaps best known for his roles portraying twins Adam and Stuart Chandler on "All My Children," died of natural causes at The Greens of Cannondale, according to the Wilton Bulletin.

Canary had many roles on stage and screen, including the film "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre," TV's "Gunsmoke," Broadway's "Great Day In The Morning," among others, the story said.

He later had roles in television soap operas before joining ABC's "All My Children" in 1983. He started out playing Adam Chandler but later added a new dimension by playing Adam's twin Stuart, the story said.

Funeral services are private, though a memorial service is being planned for a later date, the story said. Arrangements are being handled by Bouton Funeral Home in Georgetown.
