    I loved Robert Urich in Vega$, Spenser For Hire, and many other TV shows and movies. He was so handsome and he was a unique actor with a great voice. I often watch one of his movies, (Danielle Steels’ – A Perfect Stranger) over and over again on VHS because he played such an awesome role in this movie! Robert, you will always be very sadly missed!! Continue to R.I.P.
