There are very few TV producers whom I can say “I enjoyed their work”.
Stephen J. Cannell is the exception. May he rest in peace in the arms of Our Savior for all eternity.

Waiting for the gullible among us who insist celebrity deaths come in threes. This is the fourth in the last week or so, and just one of many so far this year. That “they come in threes” nonsense is tiresome and not worthy of otherwise intelligent people.

Didn’t see one of my favorite Cannell shows .. “Renegade” .. starring Lorenzo Lamas.

About a cop framed for murder who goes on the run and becomes a bounty hunter.

Cannell was in some of the episodes as a cop hunting for the Renegade cop. <— Geeze .. “Only I” could make that sound Really Lame! 8-)

I recognize him from the little clip at the end of the tv show’s he produced. He would bang away at the typewriter then rip the page from the roller. RIP

I’m not a TV guy, but I do enjoy his Shane Scully novels.

He looks like he was a happy guy with a twinkle in his eye.

I loved “Baa Baa Black Sheep”. It was my favorite show when I was a kid.

I really enjoyed his work. Rest in peace, sir.

You know, 69 is way too young to go. My mom died at 69. I expected at least 20 more years with her..... arguing, scrapping.... forgiving and loving. But cancer had other plans. The older I get, the more I realize just how young she actually was when we lost her. I’m sure his family and loved ones feel the same.

Again.... RIP, sir.
