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.

Dennis' 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.

His 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.
