I was shocked to see this- I thought he had died a few years ago. I do think in recent years he had been very reclusive. Hogan’s Heroes I enjoyed watching back when I was growing up. For some reason I don’t think there were many Nazis like Col. Wilhelm Klink or his sidekick Sgt. Schultz.
The only main character left from the show is “LeBeau”- Robert Clary- the rest have passed away. Schultz was always my favorite.
It was Dawson who introduced Bob Crane to John Henry Carpenter-the man who most likely killed Crane. There was a pretty good movie about this-ten years or so ago called “Auto Focus”
Reading his obit-I was surprised how quickly time passes- Dawson’s last year on “Family Feud” was 1985. That is 27 years ago. Time flies. I have no idea if “Family Feud” is still on but when I hear those words I think of Richard Dawson.
