I'm sad to hear this. Loved the Rockford Files, of course. I'd like to read his memoir - The Garner Files.

I was just looking at his work, and apparently he was in Fire in the Sky, a sci-fi film in the early 90's I vaguely remember seeing.

Indeed Maverick and the Rockford files were two of my favourite TV programs.

I liked his role as "The Scrounger" in the Great Escape. He must have enjoyed that role as he was his company's scrounger in Korea.

RIP Mr. Garner. I enjoyed all of his roles. As a kid I loved watching Maverick. As an adult I loved him in The Rockford Files.

I didnt know he was a Koeran vet either.
