RIP KEN OSMOND 1943-2020

Eddie Haskell has passed away.

Ken Osmond will always be known as Eddie Haskell from "Leave It To Beaver", how ever he had a somewhat interesting career outside of his role on that show.

His first credited role was in the TV show "Screen Directors Playhouse" in 1955. From then on he appeared in such TV series as "The Loretta Young Show", "Annie Oakley", and "Wagon Train".

In 1957 he landed the Haskell role and never looked back. He retired from acting and became a policeman until he was forced to retire after being shot three times at various times in the line of duty.

For those of us that grew up watching him as the smooth talking truant, Eddie Haskell, it is that legacy that will stay with us forever. Ken passed away on May 18th, 2020 at the age of 76. Just a couple of weeks shy of his 77th b-day.
