‘F Troop’ star Larry Storch passed away at age 99
According to a statement posted by his family on Facebook, Larry Storch passed away on Thursday. He was a television actor best known for his part in the 1960s sitcom “F Troop.” He was 99.
“We must inform you that our dear Larry went away in his sleep the previous night, and we do so with the heaviest of hearts. We are currently speechless and in a state of astonishment. Please keep in mind that he adored each and every one of you and would not want you to shed a tear for him.
He is reunited with his wife Norma, his cherished F Troop cast, as well as a large number of friends and relatives “The declaration said.
A humorous performer who also handled voiceover work, Storch was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1967 for his portrayal of the cunning Corporal Randolph Agarn on “F Troop.”
A satirical Western called “F Troop” about inept troops and benign Native Americans at a made-up Army outpost in the Old West aired on ABC for two seasons.
Slapstick humor, sight gags, and White performers portraying Native Americans, notably Don Rickles, were all part of the politically incorrect series.
Throughout his lengthy career, the New Yorker had cameos in a large number of TV shows, such as “I Dream of Jeannie,” “Get Smart,” “The Flying Nun,” and “The Love Boat.”
Additionally, Storch was a well-known figure on a number of well-liked variety programs of the day, such as “Sonny and Cher,” “Laugh-In,” and “Hollywood Squares.”
Later in his career, he went back to New York and performed on Broadway. In the 2000 production of “Annie Get Your Gun,” he was cast alongside Reba McEntire. In a staging of the comedic play “Sly Fox” in 2004, he was 81 years old and gave many performances each week.
Storch accepted his duty as the leader of “F Troop” throughout it all.
IMDB quotes Storch as stating, “You can hear from the balcony, ‘Hey, Agarn,’ sometimes, as I walk out on stage.” 40 years later, it still makes me laugh.
