Dean Stockwell passed away on Sunday, November 7th! I will always remember him as Al from Quantum Leap! But his role as mentor to Jonas Quinn in Season 6 of Stargate SG-1 was heartbreaking and that episode stayed with me. His career lasted 70 years! He was in one of the later Thin Man movies with William Powell and Mirna Loy in the 1940's. RIP Dean Stockwell, you will be but not forgotten! https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/dean-stockwell-death-quantum-leap-b1954096.html https://www.tmz.com/2021/11/08/dean-stockwell-dead-dies-quantum-leap-married-to-the-mob/
