RIP Jerry Doyle
 
Unbelievably, Jerry Doyle has died at just 60 years old. Too many have gone beyond the rim too early.

Rest well, Mr. Garabaldi.

I don't believe it. Absolutely don't believe it. I'm gutted. Holding out hope that this is a hoax of some kind.

Far too many of the cast have gone before their time. RIP Jerry.

I was shocked, just shocked, to hear of this. So sad, that another of the First Ones has passed beyond the Rim.

I don't think this is a hoax, as his family posted about it on his Facebook page

The BBC have a brief obituary: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-36918773

Edit: and a statement from JMS on Jerry Doyle's Epic Times website: http://www.epictimes.com/07/28/2016/...h-jerry-doyle/

I now think it would be an awesome prank to pre-record a bunch of videos saying reports of my death were actually a prank, and have somebody release them after my death.

Or horribly insensitive. I dunno, I can never find that line.

It's been a while since I last checked in on this board, but I had to come by to see if Doyle's death was true. It's becoming quite a list of those gone from B5.

I read JMS's comment on how we've lost too many, too early (in our B5 circle).

Jerry Doyle was one of the freshest characters in the show. He felt genuine whether things were up or down, comedic or tragic. And he seemed to make quite an impression on those who knew him.

Following up on Hypatia's mention of JMS, here is his own obiturary of Jerry, for want of a better term.

A sad day among many such days.

Thanks for the memories, Jerry. We'll see you beyond The Rim.

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle
 
So very sad... the B5 cast is just tragic. We have lost far too many.

I interviewed Jerry once, and I had technical issues and never got it off the tapes... I really need to try again.

I've been out of town but learned about this the day it came out. At first I thought it was just a spam post on Facebook, but it was not unfortunately. He was brilliant as Garibaldi and I also enjoyed his radio program on the rare occasions that I got to hear it. Hard to believe another is gone way too soon.

I found an obituary for Jerry Doyle. While visitation and services look to be for friends and family, I found this:
---------
Memorial donations, to the Wounded Warriors Foundation, 4899 Belfort Road, Suite 300, Jacksonville, FL 32256 or www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
----------
Note: This is the form to use to make the donation in memory of Jerry Doyle:

And condolence notes can be left here:

I haven't done the research myself, but anybody thinking of donating to the above organization should be aware of reports like the following:

And either satisfy themselves that it is the best way to donate their money, or choose another organization with the same stated goals.

John Hudgens has done yet another wonderful memorial video:

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle
 
That's awesome Jan. I wish that video didn't have to happen. His words towards the end of it are definitely words to live by though. It did bring a tear to my eye. Hopefully we won't have to worry about losing another cast member for a long time.

That is all.

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle
 
I was shocked to hear it, was he in ill health? He was so young.

Very nice tributes, his character really was a big part of the heart and humor of the series.

Apologies if this seems like advertising but I think it's of interest. The B5 Books folks have created a cool tribute item that honors Jerry as well as his character, Garibaldi.

The Garibaldi Holocrystal
A Memorial for Jerry Doyle
A Tribute to Michael Garibaldi

The death of Jerry Doyle on July 27, 2016 shocked and saddened Babylon 5 fandom. Five weeks later, on August 31, the Coroner's Office confirmed that Jerry Doyle died from natural causes with complications from chronic alcoholism.

To give fans the opportunity to honor Jerry Doyle and do some good, we are offering the "Garibaldi Holocrystal," with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Claudia Christian's C Three Foundation.

ABOUT CLAUDIA CHRISTIAN'S C THREE FOUNDATION
A GuideStar-awarded non-profit, the C Three Foundation was created in 2013 by Claudia to educate doctors, alcoholics and their loved-ones about The Sinclair Method, the most successful long term treatment for alcoholism.

Each check sent to C Three will include the names of people who purchased the Garibaldi Holocrystal. (No contact information will be shared. Only names.)
(oh, and there's a special treat tucked way on the bottom of the text) ;)

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle
 
I always seem to find out so late. It has now been a year and a half since he left us.
This is what I found online:

Jerry Doyle, an actor known best as a star of the sci-fi TV series “Babylon 5,” died July 27, 2016, according to multiple news sources. He was 60.

Doyle’s family announced his death on his official Twitter page. “The family of Jerry Doyle is sad to announce Jerry’s passing,” said the tweet. “The cause of death is unknown at this time.”

Doyle played Michael Garibaldi, chief of the space station's security, on the TV series and also played the character in the TV movie that preceded the series, “Babylon 5: The Gathering.” The series ran from 1994 until 1998. In 1999, Doyle was featured in a follow-up movie, “Babylon 5: A Call to Arms.” During the series' run, Doyle was briefly married to his co-star, Andrea Thompson, who played the telepath Talia Winters for the show's first two seasons.

His first role was in the TV series “Moonlighting” with Bruce Willis. He also had roles in “NYPD Blue,” “JAG,” and “Beverly Hills, 90210.”

After the cancellation of "Babylon 5," Doyle turned to politics, mounting a 2000 run for U.S. Congress representing California’s 24th Congressional District. Running as a Republican, he was defeated by the Democratic incumbent. He later turned to talk radio, hosting his syndicated radio talk show, “The Jerry Doyle Show,” on Talk Radio Network. He founded the news website and podcast network EpicTimes in 2013 and also wrote a book titled, “Have You Seen My Country Lately? America’s Wake-Up Call” in 2009.

Upon hearing of Doyle's death, “Babylon 5” creator J. Michael Straczynski wrote a heartfelt statement that discusses Doyle as an actor and as a person. It includes the description: "He was funny, and dangerous, and loyal, and a prankster, and a pain in the ass; he was gentle and cynical and hardened and insightful and sometimes as dense as a picket fence ... and his passing is a profound loss to everyone who knew him, especially those of us who fought beside him in the trenches of Babylon 5."

Straczynski also noted a moment when Doyle's political views contributed to the writing of the show: "There is a line in Babylon 5 where his character, Michael Garibaldi, suggests that the way to deal with crime is to go from electric chairs to electric bleachers. That line is quintessential Jerry Doyle. I say this with confidence because I overheard him saying it at lunch then stole it for the show."

Doyle was also remembered by many of his "Babylon 5 co-stars." Bruce Boxleitner, who played Commander John Sheridan, tweeted: "I am so devastated at the news of the untimely death of my good friend @jerrydoyle. During the B5 years, he was a great pal, RIP Garibaldi." Claudia Christian, who played Commander Susan Ivanova, posted on Facebook, "It is with incredible sadness that we say goodbye to Jerry Doyle. He was a brilliant man, a joy to work with and a fantastically funny individual. We will miss him deeply. Please remember him with love.....I will miss his laugh and his light."

Other "Babylon 5" stars to remember Doyle include Bill Mumy, whose eloquent Facebook post includes, "It was easy acting with Jerry. He was a good natural actor. Despite the fact that he'd fly in from some ridiculous far away location having not slept for three days straight, he never messed up on camera. He once broke his arm filming a scene and insisted that he stay on set to finish the scene before going to the hospital. Yeah. He was a tough guy. For real."
