    Bummer. I learned so much from him. Thanks for all the great tips and memories.

  3. I still haven't managed to make spark plugs from sea shells - sorry Professor - RIP.
  4. In later years, he would comment how curious it was that the Professor could make a radio from a coconut, but couldn't fix a hole in a boat?

    Loved the show. The Professor was the only character that could have gotten them off the island using a coconut shell radio transmitter! RIP Russell Johnson

    I remember that one.

    If I was him there with Mary Ann I would have made sure no one got off that island.

    Odd that he died on the same day as Reuben from the Partridge Family.

    Russell Johnson and Dave Madden RIP
