    Wasn't he also on Hogan's Heroes?

    There was a rumor going around years ago that he committed suicide. Come to find out, it was another Family Feud host, not Richard.

    I always like Richard on the show. But now with all the crime against women and children going on, I doubt a host would ask all the contestants to kiss him anymore!

    Rest in peace, Richard!

    Aww so sad. He was the host when my brother, SIL and her sisters went on Family Feud. We watch the recorded tape all the time (to laugh at my bro). Rest in Peace, Richard..

    Another one gone. I loved watching the show when he hosted. Really lost interest after he stopped hosting. He added to the humor of the show.

    Sleep peacefully Richard.

    There was a whole lot of strange stuff that went on with the Hogan's Heroes crew. I did love that show though!

    Have fond memories of watching Richard on Family Feud. I liked his friendly manner with the contestants and his sense of humor. May he rest in peace.

    It's funny, my daughter has been watching old Family Feud's lately and I mentioned that the best host of all times had been Richard Dawson and then today I hear that he passed away. RIP Richard.

    I am so sorry to hear of Richards death. I always liked him. I also liked Richard Karns on the Feud. Richard Coombs is the one who committed suicide, he left a wife and four children...Richard D. you will be missed.

    I loved Richard Dawson when he was part of the Match Game panel also. He used to crack me up with some of his answers.

    RIP Richard

    I loved him on Family Feud too - he will be missed. I never knew he was British. He doesn't have a very strong accent.

    Hi, in the midst of insomnia I remembered Ray Coombs was the name of the host who committed suicide.
