Another US TV icon... (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/24/chad-everett-dead-medical-center-star-dies_n_1700296.html)

I didn't know he was sick.

When I was a kid, I remember being "shocked" when Everett (on a day-time talk show,) mentioned how he liked to swim in his pool in the nude. I thought that was too wild! :eek: :eek:

Sorry to hear of his passing. Crappy cancer strikes yet again. :(

Sad. And his wife preceded him in death... :(

I had a big crush on him in his Medical Center days.

45 year marriage is quite an accomplishment in Hollywood. RIP Dr. Joe Gannon

I thought he was so cute, had a crush on him at age six.

I too had a crush on him as a kid. Dr Joe. Last saw him on Cybil, he aged well!

Really sad day. I, too, had a crush on him at a very young age. His turn parodying his Medical Center character on The Nanny was totally fun.

Cancer sucks. :(

That's one way to put it Kruss. :(

I also had a crush on him when I was little.

May he rest in peace. :(

Not a big TV watcher, but Medical Center was one show I followed regularly. RIP, Chad Everett/Dr. Gannon.

I had such a crush on him when I was young and I watched Medical Center faithfully to drool over him. And such a rare accomplishment in Hollywood - staying married for 45 years. RIP...

RIP Chad.

Ah so many memories, I loved Medical Center - never missed it, but that was because of Dr Gannon.
And like other posters I also has a crush, I call it a "thing" for Chad, God, he was beyond handsome. :swoon: Yes, he certainly aged well.

A comment on his marriage, 45 years is amazing by Hollywood standards.

I have a grandson who is named Chad Everett, but just a coincidence, my son-in-law's first name is Everett and my daughter liked the name "Chad".
I always liked that name.

I couldn't remember if it was Chad or James Brolin whose comment about his wife being his "property" prompted Lily Tomlin to walk off the Dick Cavett Show - the obituary clears that up - it was Chad. I remember watching it and being stunned when she did it, and then LMAO at seeing him trying to explain that he was his wife's property as well.

I enjoyed him and James Daly, the father of Tyne Daly, in the Medical Center show. Joe Gannon did look good in and out of scrubs.

Condolences to his daughters.

I had a crush on Chad, too, when I was a teenager. RIP, Chad. :(

Glad to know that I wasn't alone in finding Chad "crush-worthy"!
Didn't always agree with some of his beliefs; but, he lived by and honored them.

If you saw the show where he played a "closeted" gay police officer, you'd know that he could act, also.

He and Shelby are together again.
