LOS ANGELES Feb 27, 2006 (AP) Dennis Weaver, the slow-witted deputy Chester Goode in the TV classic western "Gunsmoke" and the New Mexico deputy solving New York crime in "McCloud," has died, his publicist said Monday. The actor was 81.
Weaver died of complications from cancer on Feb. 24 at his home in Ridgway, in southwestern Colorado, publicist Julian Myers said. More at link
Yup, just thought the same thing. I didn't realize he was that old. I liked ole McCloud.
Me three! Three good guys in such a short time.
Just read he died of complications from cancer at his home in Colorado.
The good thing is that they lived long lives and seemed like wonderful people. These folks were a classy bunch! Unlike some of today's stars!
seems like they come in 3's... RIP all
Who rememebers Dennis in Gentle Ben with Ron Howards Brother?That was a very family show.
That makes the entire original cast of GUNSMOKE dead and gone.
This week has not been good to iconic 1950s television actors.

Sad to hear this. I didn't realize he was this old.
I've always noticed that too JDB. It's weird how things happen in 3s
what an attractive man. he'll be missed.
They always seem to anyway.
Billy Goat Gruff James Arness is still alive.
I had forgotten he was in Gentle Ben. I watched that in its original run.
I met Dennis Weaver once in an ice cream shop in Montrose, CA (LA suburb). It would have been in the late 70s and I was just a teenager. I remember thinking he was handsome in that cowboy kind of way.
Rest in peace, Mr. Weaver.
My thoughts exactly, I find it quite poignant. I liked all 3 and they were such a part of TV-land for all of us, and yes, class acts, all of them! Wow, life marches on, doesn't it?
That's weird - so many at 81. Conincidently, my father just died Feb. 12 at 81. He was famous around here anyway.
