Dale Robertson Dies

Tv and movie star Dale Robertson, who starred in Westerns during the genre's heyday, passed away on Tuesday. He was 89.

Robertson's niece, Nancy Robertson, claimed her uncle died at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, Calif., following a brief illness.

According to Nancy Robertson, Dale Robertson would want to be remembered as a father, a grandfather and an Oklahoman.

"He came back a lot when he was in Hollywood, and he came back (to Oklahoma) after retiring," she was quoted as saying.

"I remember him as a larger-than-life fellow," she stated. "When he was in town it was always very exciting. It always meant something magical was going to happen," such as another actor or performing artist accompanying him on his visits.

It has to be mentioned that Dale Robertson was married several times, most recently in 1980 to Susan Robbins, who survives him along with two children.

Nancy Robertson revealed that her uncle will be cremated and that a memorial service will be held in a few weeks.
