Walker, Texas Ranger star Clarence Gilyard Jr. dies at 66

LINK


quote:

Clarence Gilyard Jr., an actor best known for starring in “Walker, Texas Ranger” and his supporting performance in “Die Hard,” has died. He was 66 years old. No further details about his death are available at this time.

Gilyard’s death was confirmed through a statement by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Gilyard had been working as a film and theatre professor at UNLV College of Fine Arts.

“Professor Gilyard was a beacon of light and strength for everyone around him,” UNLV film chair Heather Addison said. “Whenever we asked him how he was, he would cheerfully declare that he was ‘Blessed!’ But we are truly the ones who were blessed to be his colleagues and students for so many years. We love you and will miss you dearly, Professor G!”




quote:

Gilyard appeared on 85 episodes of “Matlock” before departing the series in 1993 for an even bigger role: Jimmy Trivette, the right hand man to Chuck Norris’ tough sergeant on CBS’ Western crime series “Walker, Texas Ranger.” He appeared in all 196 episodes of the series’ eight season. After the finale in 2001, Gilyard continued to act in various films and TV shows

Not many left of the old Walker, Texas Ranger crew. My BIL's BIL was an extra that was onscreen as bad guy a number of times and it was his customized black Jeep they used on the show and had his own dojo a while. He died a few years after the show ended, chronic illness that taking a lot of hits over the years didn't help.


Yep, next year I'm taking Norris in the celeb death pool.

Saying, in my best cornball brotha accent, "and the quarterback is toast!" will never be the same. RIP.

Damn, that’s a shame. This show was after my time as a kid, but I caught episodes here and there. Hollywood wouldn’t want a show like this anymore. RIP.

Sad to see.

He was a staple in the programs my parents (and me since we only had 1 tv for a time) watched.
