    my heart goes out to the family of Jeff Conaway such a tragic loss,to a wonderful actor and Man. May you Rest In Peace in that Malt Shop In The Sky… With all our love and condolences… The Shreeve Family

  2. Kurt F Says:

    I am sorry to see he passed, just three days ago. He was a good workman actor, and his presence on screen was immense. The characters he played always had a striking sincerity. He easily made the character come alive, not just a stereotype to blurt lines. He was meant to be an actor and I’m glad he was able to make a career of it. Personal problems aside, he led a better life than most people who never get to spend time doing what they should have in their heart.

    He was awsome as Burt Reynolds penis in “My Nuts My Moustache”. He truely captured being a dick. Oh and why do people on this page write to him like he will ever read or see this page. Now that’s worse than Jeffs role as a father and junkie.
