On Monday 5/21/18 the "Big Guy" himself Clint Walker peacefully passed away in California. He played on the TV series 'The Cheyenne Show' until a contract dispute in 1958 which allowed newcomer Ty Hardin to star as "Bronco Layne". Clint did eventually return along with Will Hutchins as "Sugarfoot" while all three began to rotate their episodes on the show becoming the best of friends!
God Bless You both Mr. Hardin and Mr. Walker as you may Rest In Peace. Thank You both for the great memories and may you continue to entertain us all for many more decades to come! Both of you great friends will be missed by your millions of fans all over the world but will never be forgotten! My most sincere condolences to the Hardin and Walker family.
Sincerely, Joseph J. Janis

I was saddened to just read of Ty's passing. As a child Bronco Lane was my hero, later as a young adult I was fortunate to meet and get to know Ty Hardin during the making of Riptide in Australia at the Artranza Studios in French's Forest. It was during this time I got to know Ty and some of his family. Ty certainly was enthusiastic about all that he did and the world is a lessor place for his passing. Please pass on my condolences to his wife and family.

So sorry about your recent loss. I always enjoyed Bronco as a kid, in fact I considered Bronco, Cheyenne, Sugarfoot, and Maverick the best of the TV westerns. May God give you comfort in the days that lie ahead.

Very saddened... only today finished viewing the last of the Bronco TV series..First got to admire and idolise Ty as an impressionable seven year old in Australia ... his rugged good looks and acting prowess have stayed with me for a lifetime ... I wish I'd gotten to the know the gentleman in a personal sense .. such memories allow me to reflect better the start of my own twilight years and all that is good in life ... thank you Ty ...

I just recently watched Ty's "Bronco" series. I am so saddened to hear of his passing. I also went to his website and began to realize what a Patriot he was. He was a great man and a hero to Americans. He will be missed.

Dear Ms.Carolyn Pampu Hardin,

My deepest condolences for the loss of your husband. I'm sure the pain of losing a loved one is hard to handle but with Gods help we are able to cope. Note what Salmos 105:4 encourages us to do "search or God and his strength". If one accepts this invitation God in no way will let you down.

May the God of all comfort be with you in the days ahead.
