    That leaves Richard Dawson, Robert Clary (LeBeau), Cynthia Lynn (Klink's first secretary for one season), and Kenneth Washington (who replaced Dixon late in the series) as the only living regular cast members.
     
  5. Sounds like he was an interesting guy.
    Poitier's stunt double?
    Didn't know that.

    Didn't realize all he had been part of before "Hogan" but always saw his directing credits afterward from time to time.

    Dawson is still alive, BTW.

    You call that living/

    I must have been thinking of Bert Convy.

    We'll miss ya Kinch. One of my favorite shows while growing up. BUt very true, Dixon had several dramatic roles before "Hogan's Heroes" and was quite good, too.

    Kinch was the coolest guy on that show.

    Happy trails, Ivan Dixon.
