Don Diamond, 90, a veteran character actor best known for playing the sidekick El Toro in the 1950s TV series "The Adventures of Kit Carson" and Crazy Cat in the 1960s TV sitcom "F Troop," died June 19.
Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on June 4, 1921, Diamond graduated from the University of Michigan, where he studied drama and Spanish. He served in the Army Air Forces during World War II
I vividly remember my Grandparents always watching re-runs of the Adventures of Kit Carson, and I always had to watch with them. After a while it grew on me. Don Diamond, a University of Michigan graduate had a very successful film career, and he did a great job in the Adventures of Kit Carson.
In the same article it is noted that Nick Charles ... CNN's first sports anchor passed away yesterday. Nick Charles covered all sports from professional to college for CNN.
RIP Don Diamond and Nick Charles
