News from Walton's Mountain




Very sad news again:

The actor, writer, director and teacher Richard Hatch passed away peacefully yesterday, on February 7, at the age of only 71 years in Los Angeles, with his family and friends on his site.He lost a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Richard Hatch was born on May 21,1945 in Santa Monica, California. He started his career at the theater stage before he began his television career in 1970 in the TV series "All my Children". He had many guest appearances in best-known TV series and films. He was very well known as a worthy successor of Michael Douglas in the TV series "The Streets of San Francisco" beside the unforgotten Karl Malden. For this role he won the German Bravo Award. His most famous role was Captain Apollo in original Battlestar Galactica television series. For this he received a Golden Globe nomination in 1978.

To all the fans of the Waltons Richard Hatch is best known in his role as Wade Walton, a relative of the Waltons. He lived with his wife Vera, his grandfather and great-grandmother Martha Corrine in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and there, with the support of the Waltons from Waltons Mountain, tried to defend his land against the construction of a large-scale project. This episode was called "The Conflict" from the 3rd season.

We personally met Richard Hatch on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Waltons 2012 in Los Angeles. It is hard to imagine that this sympathetic, so good-looking man, who still radiated so much youthfulness and never looked like being almost 70 years, is now no longer with us. Very sad.

Here is a link to the website of Richard Hatch . And another link to a condolence book for fans who want to leave a few words.

Good night Richard !


We wish all friends of THE WALTONS and visitors of our website a

Happy and healthy NEW YEAR !
