Oil Man and Astronaut

Larry Hagman has died at the age of 81. Although he was best known as J.R. Ewing in the TV series Dallas, I will remember him best as “Master” in “I Dream of Jeannie”.

Hagman died at a Dallas hospital of complications from cancer, said the statement posted on Hagman’s official web site early Saturday.

“Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most,” it said.

“Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time.”
