Stephen J. Cannell, 69, entrepreneur and TV writer who was behind such shows as "The Rockford Files" and "The A-Team" passed away Sept. 30. He was a friend to Las Vegas performers and a prolific writer, producer and showman during the boom years of the 6's, 70's and into the '80's.
He was a big part of my growing up, of the shows that I watched and of the pattern, characters, dialogue and very fabric of the work that followed from countless actors, producers, writers, directors and creative professionals who grew up watching his work. He overcame personal handicaps and tragedies to remain an influence until illness go the best of him,
The following obituary and links to additional information about Cannell and his projects appears on his official web site:
With profound sadness, we have to announce that our dear friend and colleague, Stephen Cannell, has lost a brave fight against cancer. He passed away at his home last night. He will be missed beyond measure by the Cannell Team and all of us who had the privilege and the plain good luck to know and work with him. Through the legacy of his body of work, with which he was able to entertain and enrich the lives of millions of viewers and thousands of readers, he will always be with us, living on in our hearts and minds, with fond memories forever.
