Actor Don Galloway, who guest-starred on two episodes of Knight Rider: The Original Series, passed away in a Reno, Nevada hospital on January 8th following a stroke. He was 71.
He was best-known for his co-starring role as Detective Sergeant Ed Brown in the popular crime drama Ironside, and also appeared on Marcus Welby, M.D., Love, American Style, Fantasy Island, Hotel, Charlie’s Angels, Dallas, MacGyver and Murder, She Wrote.
Galloway will be familiar to Knight Rider fans as Gilbert Cole — the corrupt lawyer who frames Stefanie Mason (Catherine Hickland) in Season One’s White Bird, and Harley Freeman — a mentor of Bonnie who is used in a plot to steal a missile guidance system in Season Three’s Knight In Retreat.
Galloway is survived by his wife, Linda Marie, two daughters from his first marriage, Tracy and Jennifer, two stepchildren, Sheila and Robert, and three grandchildren.
