Gary Dawson posted a Facebook message early this morning that read:
"It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my father passed away this evening from complications due to esophageal cancer. He was surrounded by his family. He was an amazing talent, a loving husband, a great dad, and a doting grandfather. He will be missed but always remembered."

While Dawson is probably best remembered for hosting the game show Family Feud I actually loved him as Capt. Peter Newkirk on “Hogan’s Heroes” and for his role in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film “The Running Man.

I had the privilege of meeting Richard Dawson at a fundraiser back in 1998 and he was quite the gentleman and very nice and down to earth. The world lost a shining star and Richard Dawson will definitely be missed. No word yet on Richard Dawson’s funeral but we’ll keep you posted if we hear anything because I can imagine a lot of fans of his would love to say goodbye to this wonderful man.
