Sgt Dietrich from Barney Miller fame has passed away. I loved Barney Miller as a kid, and am surprised he was only 65, because he looked worn out on the show all the time.

The young whippersnapper who came on the force to replace Fish doesn't survive Abe Vigoda. Abe will outlive us all. Farewell Dietrich.

In defense of StaggerLee, the NYT obit originally stated that his age was 65. I nearly posted this before their correction...

Barney Miller was one of those shows that I watched when I was way too young to be watching what I was watching. See also: All In The Family and Good Times.

I didn't realize who this was. What a great show that was. I catch it on TV Land from time to time and realize now how great it was.

The episode where he is first mentioned only make reference to the fact that he is perceived to be in the pocket of mining interests and is not particularly swift on the uptake. But no actual source of the "Bingo Bob" moniker.
