Famous actor Mike Connors, best known for starring in the long-running series Mannix as a private eye, has died.
At the age of 91, he died while surrounded by family in a Los Angeles hospital. He was struggling with leukemia, which he was diagnosed with just a week ago, according to Mike Condon, his son-in-law.
This is tragic. Please pray:
“Mannix” ran for eight years on CBS beginning in 1967. Viewers were intrigued by the tall, smartly dressed, well-spoken detective who could mix it up with the burliest of thugs and leap on the hood of a racing car to prevent an escape.
Connors, born Krekor Ohanian in 1925, was from an Armenian community in Fresno. He served in the Air Force during World War II.
RIP Mike Connor. Loved the Mannix show. https://t.co/9gfCSNg4kU
