Pernell Roberts, star of popular TV series such as Bonanza and Trapper John MD, Died today at the age of 81 years. He had contracted cancer and lost his battle with it this week.
As a child growing up, I had long been fond of the popular TV series Bonanza, where Pernell played the dashing Adam Cartwright. The show has become an American Icon over the years. Pernell also starred later in the the popular TV series, Trapper John M.D which aired from 1970-1986. One of his last roles was in the 2001 episode of Diagnonsis: Murder.
I know that I will dearly miss this actor as he was a great contributor to the TV industry, with his warm on-screen demeanor which was so endearing to the American public. Pernell ..you will be Missed!
