Jeremy Slate was an American actor who gained fame in the early 1960s on the television series “The Aquanauts” about two ex-Navy scuba divers running a dive shop and business in southern California. A few years later he appeared alongside Elvis Presley in the feature “Girls! Girls! Girls!”
Often cast as a tough guy, Slate would appear during the late 1960s in several biker films, including “The Born Losers” and what would become a cult film, “Hell’s Angels ’69”, which he co-wrote.
He appeared in nearly 100 television shows, including “Gunsmoke,” “Mission: Impossible,” “Bewitched” and “Police Story.” Most recently, he was seen in the NBC sitcom “My Name Is Earl.”
From 1979 to 1987, Jeremy had a regular role on the ABC daytime drama “One Life to Live” as Chuck Wilson, his longest-running part.
Slate is survived by his partner, Joan Benedict-Steiger and his two sons and two daughters.
