another loss ...
"John Ritter, whose portrayal of the bumbling but lovable Jack Tripper helped make the madcap comedy series 'Three's Company' a smash hit in the 1970s, has died, his publicist and longtime assistant said Friday. He was 54.
Ritter, a Southern California native who lived in Beverly Hills, was the
son of country music legend Tex Ritter, who made his mark in the "singing cowboy" tradition and died in 1974, just before his son hit it big in television."
thanks for the good times. RIP.
