Dude was funny on Barney Miller. When ever he tried to sound very authoritative, people made Gregory Peck jokes because he did do a good Peck impersonation. Barney Miller and Gregory Peck; old stuff that I still like. Sigh.

Say it ain't so Wojo! 65 may technically be "senior citizen status" but that is too young to go. He'll be missed.
