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.

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle

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.

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle

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

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle

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/

Re: RIP 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.

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle

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.

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle

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.

Re: RIP Jerry Doyle

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