Richard Dawson known best for hosting the “Family Feud” and starring in “Hogan’s Heroes” has died, ABC News has confirmed.

He was 79. He died Saturday due to complications from cancer.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my father passed away this evening from complications due to esophageal cancer. He was surrounded by his family. He was an amazing talent, a loving husband, a great dad, and a doting grandfather. He will be missed but always remembered…,” wrote Dawson’s son Gary in a posting on Facebook early this morning.

Dawson hosted several incarnations of the popular game show the “Family Feud” after it debuted in 1976.

In addition to hosting “Family Feud,” Dawson appeared on the show “Match Game” as a guest panelist.

He also appeared in films like “The Running Man” and television series such as “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “The Alfred Hitchcock Hour,” according to IMDB.com.

Dawson was born Colin Lionel Emm in Gosport, Hampshire England on Nov. 30, 1932. He was married to Gretchen Johnson. They met while Johnson was a contestant on the “Family Feud.” Together they had a daughter named Shannon Nicole Dawson. When he hosted the second run of “Family Feud” Dawson made a promise to Johnson not kiss anyone — as Dawson was known for kissing all the female contestants when the show premiered in the 1970s.

Dawson was previously married to Diana Dors and the couple had two sons, Mark Dawson and Gary Dawson

Never a fan of Family Feud, but Richard Dawson was the only reason to watch Match Game.

He was, far and away, the consistently most clever and funny celebrity panelist on that show.

I'm not sure anymore, but game show network used to show the reruns of these shows quite a bit.

Game show in the 70s, you were probably too busy fapping to the oil crisis back then to ever see it.

He was great in that flick, it was kinda weird seeing him in the role of such a heartless bastard though.

One of the best scenes in that movie, sorry embedding disabled.

Yeah, you wouldn't see that on a game show these days.
Bob Baker takes the cake though. He'd make the female contestants reach into his pocket. What a perv.

What was funny about Match Game was all the pervy little sexual inneudo questions.

Heres an example. and this used to air during the family hour.

When I was a kid, I would come home from school and my Mom would be getting ready to watch the Match Game. She loved that show-I would watch sometimes but the adult humor would usually go over my head

Heh, yeah. What was the name of the Latino chick sidekick with the permanent camel toe in that outfit.

Come to think of it, I don't think camel toe had been invented yet. Perhaps just "cooter squeezed into a leotard"?

In her gullet. Thig's answer is "In her gullet".

(Kissing Thig Lyfe and moving to panel.)

What do the members of the panel say? How many matches do we have?

Did Gene Rayburn kiss the contestants? I know he had a severe Creepy Uncle Vibe (CUV) but I don't know if he was a kisser.

Oh. Maybe I'm mixing that up. Or I just felt like kissing you.


And the best answer to "She was so dumb that when she tried to find her g-spot, she looked (BLANK)" would be...

(Drum roll)

Between her f-spot and her h-spot.
