    Gilligan Dead

    Bob Denver, TV's Gilligan, dead at 70


    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES - Bob Denver, whose portrayal of goofy first mate Gilligan on the 1960s television show "Gilligan's Island," made him an iconic figure to generations of TV viewers, has died, his agent confirmed Tuesday. He was 70.

    Denver, who underwent quadruple heart bypass surgery earlier this year, died at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in North Carolina, according to agent Mike Eisenstadt. Denver's death was first reported by "Entertainment Tonight."


    RIP

    More than half of the cast is gone now: the Howells, Skipper and Gilligan.

    Wow. No disrespect to our "little buddy," but I thought he died years ago. My bad.

    as I recall, they rescued themselves after waiting for years for someone else to do it. Maybe that is the moral of the story.:

    This next comment is terrible, I know, but when I read the above post, the "Gilligan" theme started running through my head, and I thought a more appropriate listing of the deceased from the show would've been: "Gilligan, the Skipper too, the Millionaire, and His Wife....."
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Re: Gilligan Dead

    Since it's confession time, I actually thought the headline might be for former Ohio governor John Gilligan. He's 84 now.

    For those too young to remember...

    http://www.answers.com/topic/john-j-gilligan
    "Gilligan won the election for the Governorship of Ohio in 1970, defeating Republican Roger Cloud, and serving from 1971-1975. Gilligan lost the governorship to Republican James A. Rhodes in a tight race in 1974. He subsequently served as the administrator of USAID from 1977-1979 and taught at the University of Notre Dame and elsewhere.

    In 1999, at age 78, Gilligan was elected to the Board of Education of the Cincinnati Public Schools, an office he still serves in.

    Gilligan is the father of Kathleen Sebelius, the current Governor of Kansas. They constitute the first father-daughter pair of governors in the United States."

    Is he really still on the school board in Cincinnati?

    Let's not forget the vastly underrated Maynard G. Krebs.

    I used to love that show. I virtually never see it anymore, but wish I did, at least occasionally.

    RIP, Mr. Denver
