Bob Denver Died.

IMG_0322LOS ANGELES, CA--Bob Denver, famous for playing Gilligan on the 1960s sitcom "Gilligan's Island" , has died. He was 70.

He was my first favorite TV character.

Friday at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in North Carolina he died of complications from treatment he was receiving for cancer. He is survived by his wife, Dreama, and children Patrick, Megan, Emily and Colin who were by his side.

He was also known by older TV fans as Maynard G. Krebs, the bearded beatnik friend of
Dwayne Hickman's Dobie in the "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis," which aired on CBS from 1959 to 1963.

Denver went on to star in other TV series, "The Good Guys" and "Dusty's Trail," as well as tons of cameos on TV and film.

He was also an eBay addict when checking his own name. He will also be on TV forever.
