It is with great sadness we report the death of Dennis
Patrick (Jason McGuire, Paul Stoddard). He was 84.
Dennis died on the afternoon of Sunday October 13 in
a fire that destroyed much of his home in the Hollywood
Hills, overlooking Los Angeles. He was found with the
body of his beloved poodle beside him.
career spanned nearly five decades, as an accomplished
actor and director of film, television and theatre,
with roles in many classic shows, including The Twilight
Zone, Dallas, All in the Family, War and Remembrance,
Hawaii Five-O and The Rockford Files. Throughout
his career, Dennis amassed an incredible 1,800 credited
television guest roles.
canny wit and personal warmth made him a much loved
guest at the Dark Shadows Festival fan conventions,
which he attended regularly up until last July's event
in Annaheim, California. Ever the consumate showman
and gentleman, Dennis' unique humour and insight will
leave him greatly missed by the Dark Shadows
fan community. Our deepest sympathy is extended to Dennis'
family and friends.
