steve forrest dies

So, so sad.

S.W.A.T. star Steve Forrest passed away on Saturday at the age of 87 in Thousand Oaks, California.

In addition to his many other roles, the actor, who was surrounded by family in his final moments, most notably spent two years on the 70’s action show as head of the police department’s special weapons and tactical unit.

What’s more, Steve was a World War II veteran, having served at the Battle of the Bulge. Following the war, he studied theater arts at UCLA and was quickly discovered by none other than Gregory Peck himself.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Christine, his three sons, and his grandchildren.
