The Los Angeles Times reports:
Actor Dan Haggerty of “Grizzly Adams” fame died early Friday of cancer, said his longtime friend and manager Terry Bomar. He was 73. Haggerty learned he had cancer of the spine in August and died at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Bomar said.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Haggerty was a product of Hollywood, the son of an entertainment industry veteran. His parents wanted him to be a priest. But Haggerty proved a “wild child” who “went off track and became fast and furious,” Bomar said.
JMG reader Jasun reminds us that Haggerty was in 1971’s Pink Angels, an alleged comedy about gay bikers.
