TwistedFark: He watched TV. That's not living.

He watched AWESOME TV. How dare you, sir. How dare you.

And for my part, I like to think that he's in heaven now, sitting on a couch with Jesus, watching the never-filmed seasons two through seven that those shows deserved. Also  Voyagers! and  Square Pegs.

That's it. When I die I'm leaving my estate to the English voice actress of Sailor Mercury and Mick "Mankind" Foley.

People who would APPRECIATE it.

Well I am going to leave my estate to whoever manages to get Exo-squad back on the air and resolve the 2nd story arc with those alien ships.

TwistedFark : Net-worth doesn't automatically correlate into an enjoyable, or even enviable life. The guy in this particular case never married, had no close relatives, no close friends and couldn't hold down a job, or contribute to his community. He watched TV. That's not living. I know plenty of people who aren't worth a million dollars who have lived far more than that, and they're loved far more for it.

Living in a rural area and knowing a half dozen socially retarded misfits just like him, I have a different take on the subject. He obviously had issues with social interaction but he didn't have the mental capacity to be anything than what he was. If he had liquidated his land somebody would have just stole the money from him. By living out in the woods on inherited land he was able to live life on his own terms, with his beloved dogs, away from confusing society. Sure it wasn't much of a life in your standard, but who is to say that he was unhappy with it? He kept the world away from him for 65 years, and at the end just wanted to be buried with his dogs on the land he lived on. Better than being sent to die in a government run nursing home, drugged into oblivion for being cantankerous if you ask me.

Your Average Witty Fark User: cowgirl toffee: He died? Well... it really doesn't sound like he had much of a life anyway.

He had enough to split over $1 million between two people. Do you? No? STFU.

Subs is a cock.

I'd have over a million dollars too, if I did nothing all day but watch reruns on cable for 40 years.

Watching the Matthew Star pilot now. Seems like a good actor under the hair helmet, but then I just watched Bieber hosting SNL.

Ugh! I'm sitting here racking my brain trying to remember who that second kid is...I KNOW I know the face. Who is that?

He played the younger brother on Little House on the Prairie.

A quick Wiki check shows that both guys were in Hell Night.  Maybe the dude really liked the movie... which is either kinda cool or kinda creepy, I guess.

If he had no family and their work made him happy... /shrug

If I was rich I'd be leaving money to all kinds of people. Sadly I doubt that will ever happen.

Sad about the guy.  Hope he's in a better place.

Definitely remember Kevin and Peter from my Tiger Beat/16 reading days. Kevin's career practically vanished just like Bobby Sherman's: he'd been revealed to be secretly wed with a newborn baby.  Stick a fork in the teen idol run.

I'm still wondering whatever happened to Clark Brandon.

"His will, which has now been through probate, requested that he be buried at the pet cemetery with his dogs, if possible."

I don't want to be buried in a pet sematary, I don't want to live my life again.
