Richard Dawson is really dead. This is not an Internet rumor. I checked several sources, and there was a lot of confusion. The truth is that Richard Dawson died on Saturday night from complications of esphogial cancer at the age of 79.
I had to go through several conflicting articles. But I found in the New York Daily News that indeed the host of "Family Feud" is dead. Do you remember him in "Hogan's Heros?"
Richard Dawson hosted the "Family Feud," and was known as the kissing bandit for kissing each and every female contest. He married one of those female contestants, who asked him to stop kissing the women. He obeyed!
Richard Dawson is really dead! RIP!
