Pernell Roberts RIP

For one generation he was the oldest of the Cartwright boys, and for another he was the doctor who came home from fun and games in the Korean War to help folks Marcus Welby-style, but however you remember actor, singer and activist Pernell Roberts, he passed away Sunday after a long battle with cancer.

Other than “Bonanza” and “M*A*S*H” spin-off “Trapper John, M.D.,” Roberts starred frequently on television and even won awards for his stage work. He was 81, and will be missed.
