Jerry Van Dyke 86
« on: January 06, 2018, 02:14:33 PM »
Actor and comedian Jerry Van Dyke passes away at age 86.   Younger brother of Dick Van Dyke.   Sounds like he didn't recover from an auto accident he and his wife were in two years ago.   Thought he was pretty funny on Coach.   RIP

I loved Coach.  86 is a good run, though.  RIP.

I vaguely remember as a child, his cameo[s?] on the Dick Van Dyke show, playing Rob Petrie's brother, and thinking he was hilarious. The character had some kind of narcolepsy or something weird like that, if I remember correctly.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

I don't remember that, but do remember him being in a few shows. Was pretty funny in anything he did.

RIP, Jerry.

Luther on Coach, I think that was his show name.

86, bummer, same age as my father.

R.I.P. Jerry.
