    Richard Dawson passed away Saturday at the age of 79, from complications related to esophageal cancer.

    He hoted Family Feud for years, known for kissing all the women!

    However, I knew him best from being POW Cpl. Peter Newkirk on "Hogan's Heroes"

    Dawson was born Colin Lionel Emm in Gosport, Hampshire England on Nov. 30, 1932. He was married to Gretchen Johnson. They met while Johnson was a contestant on the “Family Feud.” Together they had a daughter named Shannon Nicole Dawson. When he hosted the second run of “Family Feud” Dawson made a promise to Johnson not kiss anyone — as Dawson was known for kissing all the female contestants when the show premiered in the 1970s.
    “I kissed them for luck and love, that’s all,” Dawson told The Associated Press.
    Dawson was previously married to actress Diana Dors and the couple had two sons, Mark Dawson and Gary Dawson.

    Aw...like you I enjoyed him on Hogan's Heroes...I personally thought he was a bit of a "lounge lizard" type on Family Feud, but certainly kept the game going! RIP...
