    I was so shocked when I read that.  Wow.  Kung Fu was my favorite.  May he rest in peace.

      Tenaj - He was my all time favorite actor in that genre. I watched him everytime the show came on. Whatever movies he made, I would watch them. He will be sorely missed and yes, may he rest in peace.

          So Sad. I loved watching him act. His skills were extraordinary. He'll be deeply missed. If there were two movies I enjoyed the most besides the Kung Fu shows, it would have to be the Lone Wolf movie with Chuck Norris and the Bird on a Wire with Mel Gibson & Goldie Hawn.

                So sad, he was one of my favorites as well.  May God be with his loved ones.

                This must be tough for them.  He will be missed.  This makes me sad.

                    Sad indeed. If you get a chance to read his book Endless Highway it is a chronicle of his life journey through a troubled childhood, alcohol and drug addiction, and the ups and downs of his acting career.

                    He was a unique actor with a special style who will be missed.

                    More information on him and his career:

                      Yes. Very Sad that he died. They said it was suicide then recently an accident(?). Hmmm... either way he will be missed...when you can snatch the pebble from my hand, then you will be ready, young grasshopper.
