Cannell died on September 30th after a long battle with skin cancer. His family released a statement:
“Stephen J. Cannell passed away at his home in Pasadena on Thursday evening due to complications associated with melanoma. He was surrounded by his family and loved ones. Stephen was the pillar of strength within his family and he touched everyone he met. He will be most deeply missed.”
And, his website notes, Stephen Cannell overcame “severe dyslexia.”
His star on the walk of fame is next to Maureen O’Hara, which isn’t a bad spot. Happy hunting, Mr. Cannell, wherever you are.
