With great sadness I must report the passing of a giant.
Having known this wonderful guy & having thought so much of him as a person, it has taken me a while to compose my thoughts, maybe not so much as to what to say but as to get myself to say it.
I am of course speaking of Denny Miller, who is so well known to Battlestar Galactica fans as Ser-5 in the classic episode "Gun on Ice Planet Zero".
Denny passed away on September 9th of this year.
Yep, he starred in the 1959 film "Tarzan, the Ape Man".
Denny had roles in many great television westerns such as "Laramie", "Have Gun, Will Travel" & "The Rifleman".
He appeared on "Gilligan's Island", first as surfer Duke Williams & then as Tongo the ape man.
Denny also played the Gorton's Fisherman in Gorton's television commercials for 14 years.
Denny also joined us for the 2008 Galacticruise & I wanted to share one of the wonderful pictures that photographer Chris Loomis took of him then.
Filmography & all else aside...Denny was one of the kindest & most decent human beings I have met & he had a wonderful partner in wife Nancy...she too is a great and wonderful person and my thoughts are with her.
They were always so very kind to me.
How much more can be said?
Words are probably not enough, but know well that this man made his mark on the world and in the minds & hearts of millions of people...a true Gunslinger for our times...
