    I can't even begin with how sad I am at the loss of Dennis Weaver. Thanks for all the wonderful memories you have given me from Gunsmoke to McCloud to the most amazing performance in DUEL. God Bless

    You do realize that Terry Carter (Joe Broadhurst) is the only major male actor still alive from this fine show now that Dennis Weaver has passed on and J.D. Cannon passed away last year.

    we have lost so many of the older actors, and as much as I enjoy some of the new shows they can never be replaced

    Dennis Weaver embodied All-American Decency and Honor in much the same way as John Wayne. His Before-It-Was-Popular Conservationism and his appearance in various Fora such as William F. Buckley, Jr.'s "Firing Line" stand asĀ  monuments to this man's character. The love story of his courtship of & marriage to his wife of so many years is, perhaps, his greatest lasting legacy. Dennis Weaver is very-much missed, already.
