Oh sure, his breadth of TV appearances and movies was not all that extensive, and to be sure he wasn't the most exciting of castaways, but to many of us of a certain age, he was a significant part of our childhood via syndicated reruns. Never knew he'd earned a purple heart in WWII.

He was in a shit load of B movies and character parts in almost all of the late 50s/early 60s tv shows.

Also Dave Madden (Reuben Kinkaid of the Partridge Family) shuffled off this mortal coil today as well. As long as Susan Dey stays with us though I won't feel quite as close to getting my own affairs in order.
