I happened to stumble across this today and it takes me back to my childhood.  Lee's mother was my first Tap dancing teacher & as a young man growing up we all worked together, including his brother, Dee, and his cousin Dolores.  The last time I saw Lee was we were all in his cousins wedding together.  I remain friends with his family to this day and have always felt he needed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rin Tin Tin, in my opinion, had the best Christmas episode of any vintage TV series.

Wish he had taken time to let Lee talk more. Would like to hear more about Rin Tin Tin and Jim Brown and Rand Brooks.

I just came across this on Paul Peterson's Facebook page. Lee passed away on April 1st.

Saying Goodbye to Lee Aaker
You have to be a certain age to remember Rin Tin Tin.
Lee Aaker passed away in Arizona on April 1st, alone and unclaimed...listed as an "indigent decedent."
As an Air Force veteran Lee is entitled to burial benefits. I am working on that.

$250 in the early '50's was not chump change. Especially when he got those raises.

RIP, he just passed. God, I loved this show, and he did a great job on it. It lasted my whole childhood. He's smart, eloquent-- wish the narrator wouldn't cut him off when he starts talking about advanced film stuff like John Wayne choosing Mexico as a location because of the great monsoon clouds, and what the 3D equipment looked like. The obituaries make him sound as if he had a child star's pathetic adulthood, but teaching underprivileged kids to ski-- we should all have jobs that enjoyable and fulfilling. He must have made the equivalent of 3/4 of a million dollars in 2021 money. I'll bet he had a great time as a rich, still-famous guy during the Sexual Revolution of the Seventies. :> Rest in Peace, Rusty and Rinty.
