Actor Larry Hagman has passed away at the age of 81. He was survived by his wife of 59 years, as well as their two children and five grandchildren.
As a child, I loved watching syndicated reruns of I Dream of Jeannie. As a teenager, my whole family watched Dallas on Friday nights. I don't really remember Larry Hagman playing any other roles than Major Tony Nelson and J.R. Ewing, although I know he got some other work over the years. He recently returned to the role of J.R. for TNT's reprisal of Dallas. It won't be the same without him.
