Bob Denver, whose portrayal of goofy first mate Gilligan on the 1960s television show "Gilligan's Island," made him an iconic figure to generations of TV viewers, has died, his agent confirmed Tuesday. He was 70.

Denver, who underwent quadruple heart bypass surgery earlier this year, died at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in North Carolina, according to agent Mike Eisenstadt. Denver's death was first reported by "Entertainment Tonight."

Met Dawn Wells, "Mary Ann" in 1992 (still have a picture of her and myself in my office). Nice lady and was still very cute. Sorry to see Bob go. Slapstick comedy, but there were some fun times watching the show.

My favorite one was where they were about to get off the island and Gilligan messed it up. Then they had coconut cream pie.

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,

A tale of a fateful trip

That started from this tropic port

Aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailing man,

The skipper brave and sure.

Five passengers set sail that day

For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

The weather started getting rough,

The tiny ship was tossed,

If not for the courage of the fearless crew

The minnow would be lost, the minnow would be lost.

The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle

With Gilligan

The Skipper too,

The millionaire and his wife,

The movie star

The professor and Mary Ann,

Here on Gilligans Isle.

So this is the talel of the castways,

They're here for a long, long time,

They'll have to make the best of things,

It's an uphill climb.

The first mate and the Skipper too,

Will do their very best,

To make the others comfortable,

In the tropic island nest.

No phone, no lights no motor cars,

Not a single luxury,

Like Robinson Crusoe,

As primative as can be.

So join us here each week my friends,

You're sure to get a smile,

From seven stranded castways,

Here on "Gilligan's Isle."
