Yes, great actor. I remember when Gunsmoke was introduced to TV...John Wayne, The Duke Himself, came on and did a 60-second commercial for it. He had James Arness there with him and he said "And I guarantee you all that James Arness is gonna be bigger'n me!" Arness kinda did an "aw shucks" and he leaned over and said "Well...taller, maybe..."
Rest in peace, hero. You were great. WC1

Watching Gunsmoke late on a Saturday night was a ritual around our house while I was growing up. May you rest in peace Mr. Arness and many thanks for the great memories.
Be kind to whomever you meet, because everyones fighting some kind of battle.
