RIP Mr. Roarke

Ricardo Montalban, aka Mr. Roarke, dies at 88

What kid watching TV in the late 70's - early 80's didn't want to go to Fantasy Island?

He also played in many other shows, musicals and movies. Including Khan in Star Trek-The Wrath of Khan. But he will always be best remembered as the disher-outer of fantasies in Fantasy Island.

88 years is a pretty good run so don't be sad. As Mr. Roarke would say "Smiles, everyone... smiles!"

I didn't watch this show as much as I did the Love Boat which came on just prior to this show, but he was definitely known for his role. I've heard he was also a very devout Catholic.

GOOD, long life ... RIP!
