Star of “Family Feud” Passes at the Age of 79

The world lost an American television icon yesterday. Richard Dawson, who first achieved fame on the 1960′s comedy “Hogan’s Heroes”, lost his battle with esophageal cancer Sunday.

Perhaps best known for the years he spent hosting the popular game show “Family Feud”, Dawson was famous for kissing every female contestant on the program. His executive producers estimated the Dawason planted one on nearly 20,000 women over the course of his time on the show.

Dawson is survived by his wife, a former “Family Feud” contestant, a daughter and two sons.
