R.I.P. Mr. Dawson. I grew up watching him on "Match Game" and "Feud" ...

...plus you gotta give the guy props for his totally bad-ass villain turn in "The Running Man!"

Sad news - he was  a fixture on our TV in my youth, and I loved him in THE RUNNING MAN.
RIP Richard!

Dawson was an entertaining host on "Family Feud" but honestly I'll best remember him for often shamelessly flirting with women folk be it on "Match Game" or "Family Feud". R.I.P.
