Jim Davis played bad guys in a lot of Westerns, but probably be remembered as JR's daddy Jock Ewing on Dallas. He passed away from multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood cells, during the 4th season of Dallas, and later on the writers killed off Jock Ewing in a helicopter crash.

Yvette Vickers played in many TV shows and B horror movies, most notably Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. She was discovered dead in her home in 2011 after neighbors reported not having seen her in almost a year. An autopsy showed she died of heart failure, and had been dead for nearly a year.
