And in a strange coincidence he died exactly 16 years to the day after Ray Combs (whom replaced Dawson) committed suicide. I liked Ray Combs, I thought he was really funny. I was shocked when he committed suicide.

I wasn't really a fan of Family Feud or Hogan's Hero's,but every morning I would get up and watch him on Match Game.He was great and along with Charles Nelson Reilly and Brett Summers gave Match Game the huge following it has today.Most MG shows are seen on Game Show Network.But he was the master of the quick quips.He was great.

Quoting Superfly (Reply 8): I used to wonder if he ever got cold sores or herpes from kissing all of those women. In my silly teenage mind back in the 80s, I thought that was the reason he left the show.
Good point - that's a lot of different bugs mixing together. He must have had a hell of an immune system by the end of the series.
Got to hand it to him though - he kissed the heifers and the hotties all the same. RIP
ummm... flirt? Not really. I know you (general terms, not STT in particular) may think this in bad taste, but I believe he was drunk for his entire run on Family Feud. He sure sounded and looked like it. He may have been so drunk he thought he was the cat's meow, so to speak.
