After H .Hero's was cancelled, he appeared on numerous TV shows, Laugh-In for example, and many shows's of the week before he started on the game show Family Feud.

Sorry... showing my age... ;-)

Rest in Peace Richard. Richard was an actor who had a wide range of acting ability. He could be very funny or about as dramatic as he needed to be. I don't believe he was ever type cast.

It's OK Duffy. :-) The way you wrote the first part, just made me giggle. Not giggling AT you... just the way it appeared. Just struck me as funny. :-)

Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again... this site has led me to fantastic people here, who all share, all kinds of neat info. I'm happy to be a contributor, in my small ways and I love, love, love, the doors some of yall open for me... I would have never known, if not for a post by somebody here. :-)

So sorry he died. Hogan's Heroes was one of my Dad's favorite programs. He was a POW held captive by the German's in Stalig III, he said he had a German guard like Sgt. Schultz and a British buddy who was also a pilot, just like Richard Lawson. It made him laugh. I think watching it helped him to work through some of the demons and hardships they all endured. Laughter heals the soul! Rest in peace........Richard Dawson
