Actor Martin Milner passed away yesterday at the age of 83. A cause of death has not been released.

In a career that spanned half a century, Milner is best known for his roles on Route 66 (in which he co-starred with George Maharis and later Glenn Corbett) and the Jack Webb produced Adam-12 (in which he co-starred with Kent McCord). After Adam-12, Milner also made guest appearances on show such as Fantasy Island, MacGyver and Murder, She Wrote. 

Milner also has the distinction of being the first murder victim in the Columbo TV series (following the two TV movies. In fact, I saw “Murder by the Book” which featured Jack Cassidy as the murderer aired on Saturday night on the Hallmark Mystery Channel. 

Here’s a short video of Milner and McCord at an autograph show in Chicago in 1996.
