'Family Feud' show host Richard Dawson dies

NEW YORK (AP) – Richard Dawson, the wisecracking British entertainer who was among the schemers in the 1960s sitcom Hogan's Heroes and a decade later began kissing thousands of female contestants as host of the game show Family Feud has died. He was 79.

Dawson, also known to TV fans as the Cockney POW Cpl. Peter Newkirk on Hogan's Heroes, died Saturday night from complications related to esophageal cancer at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, his son Gary said...

Sad news.

As I was growing up Dawson was always a fixture on TV: when I was a very young kid he was on Hogan's Heroes, when I was in middle school he was on Match Game, and finally he hosted Family Feud through my high school and college years.

We will miss you, Dick - 100.

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