Michael Landon

landon1October 31, 1936 – July 1, 1991

Depending on when you grew up, Michael Landon has a different pop culture identity to you. For many, he was Joe Cartwright on the long-running ’60’s and ’70’s television series, Bonanza. In the ’70’s and early ’80’s, he was Charles “Pa” Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie.  Still to later audiences, Landon is remembered for playing angel-to-be, Michael, on Highway to Heaven.

However he is remember, Michael Landon was iconic and in America’s living room almost constantly for nearly 30 years.  Alas, pancreatic cancer has no remorse for even the most successful actors and Landon died of the disease in July of 1991 at the age of 54.
