Dick Peabody

"Once again a free spirit"

I'm sorry to have to share with our fellow COMBAT! fans, that our dear Dick Peabody, "Littlejohn," passed into eternity in the early hours of the morning on Monday, December 27. He was at home with his beloved wife Tina. He had been battling prostate cancer for several months and, as Tina says "He's now once again a free spirit."

In one of them, I shall be laughing
And so it will be as it will be,
as if all the stars were laughing
when you look at the sky at night.
... and there is sweetness in the laughter of all the stars
... and in the memories of those you love.
(The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery)

If you wish to send a memorial gift, Dick had asked that any donations benefit the Motion Picture and Television Country Home and Hospital.

To donate, send a check or money order to the Motion Picture and Television Fund Foundation (MPTFF), 22212 Ventura Blvd, Suite 300, Woodland Hills, California 91364. Please include a note saying that this is donated in Memory of Dick Peabody, from a Combat! fan (or Combat! fan and friend or other appropriate note), followed by your name.
