    Awww... Dean Jones was one of my favorite actors while we were growing up. Especially "That Darn Cat" !
    And according to those who knew him in real life -- he was a nice person who took time to speak with his fans.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Jones. Thank you for sharing your talent with us ! My condolences to your loved ones.
