Welcome to another edition of Dead End.

Three of the individuals who we bid farewell to this week 
are famous in their own right, but also have family members 
who have been in the spotlight. First, we have Robert Earl 
Jones, whose son is the well-known actor James Earl Jones. 
Robert himself was a great stage and screen actor. 

Next, we say goodbye to Mickey Hargitay, who was married to 
the late actress Jayne Mansfield and is the father of Emmy 
Award-winning actress Mariska Hargitay. Mickey was a 
talented bodybuilder who won several Mr. Universe titles. 

And third, we remember the sister of President Kennedy, 
Patricia Kennedy Lawford. She was married to actor Peter 
Lawford and strongly supported her brother's campaigns. 

Also of note this week is the passing of 19-year-old teen 
actor Pablo Santos, who was killed in a plane crash. Santos 
starred in The WB series Greetings from Tucson during the 
2002-2003 season.

P.S. You can discuss this issue or any other topic in the 
new Dead End forum. Check it out here...

ROBERT EARL JONES, ACTOR, DEAD AT 96

Robert Earl Jones, the father of actor James Earl Jones and 
himself a stage and screen actor, has died in New Jersey at 
age 96. Jones died Sept. 7 in Englewood, N.J., of natural 
causes, The New York Times reported. Jones was a boxer in 
the 1930s, fighting under the name Battling Bill Stovall, 
later becoming a sparring partner for Joe Louis before he 
moved to New York and found his way into acting. He made 
his Broadway debut in 1945 in "The Hasty Heart." Jones also 
did his turn on the silver screen, his best known role
being Luther Coleman, Robert Redford's mentor in the 1973 
film "The Sting." He also appeared in "The Cotton Club" and 
"Witness." James Earl Jones appeared with his father in 
several Off Broadway productions, including "Moon on a 
Rainbow Shawl" in 1962. In addition to James Earl, another 
son, Matthew Earl Jones and a grandchild survive him.

MICKEY HARGITAY, BODYBUILDER AND ACTOR, DEAD AT 80

Mickey Hargitay, husband of the late actress Jayne Mansfield 
and father of Emmy Award-winning actress Mariska Hargitay, 
has died in Los Angeles at age 80. The bodybuilder and some-
time actor who won a string of Mr. Universe titles in the 
1950s died Thursday, a family spokesman told Monday's Los 
Angeles Times. No further details were given. Hargitay, a 
native of Hungary, traveled around the United States as part
of Mae West's live revue in the 1950s, the newspaper said.
Hargitay and Mansfield married in 1958 and divorced in 1964, 
but not before appearing together in the 1960 film "The 
Loves of Hercules," a fantasy-adventure movie produced by 
Italian filmmakers. He raised the couple's three children 
after Mansfield's June 1967 death in a car crash. Hargitay 
had a daughter Tina from his first marriage and three 
children with Mansfield -- Mickey Jr., Zolton, the child 
born after the filming of "Hercules" and Mariska, the star 
of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

PATRICIA KENNEDY LAWFORD, JFK'S SISTER, DEAD AT 82

Patricia Kennedy Lawford, the sister of President Kennedy, 
has died of complications from pneumonia. She was 82. 
Lawford bonded Hollywood and politics with her marriage to
actor Peter Lawford. She was the sixth child among Rose and 
Joseph Kennedy's nine children. Lawford supported her 
brother's political campaigns, but was inspired by her 
father's career in the movie industry. She worked as an 
assistant in NBC's New York production department and later 
worked as an assistant for Kate Smith's radio program, and 
for Father Peyton's Family Theater and Family Rosary Crusade. 
After her divorce from Peter Lawford, she became a supporter 
of New York City's art scene. She founded the National 
Committee for the Literary Arts and worked with the National 
Center on Addiction and the Kennedy Library. Lawford is 
survived by her son, Christopher Lawford; her brother Sen. 
Edward Kennedy; daughters Sydney, Victoria and Robin; 10 
grandchildren; and sisters Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Jean 
Kennedy Smith.

PABLO SANTOS, TEEN ACTOR, DEAD AT 19

"Greetings from Tuscon" star Pablo Santos was killed when a 
plane carrying him and six friends to Acapulco crashed in 
Toluca, Mexico. The 19-year-old who starred in The WB series 
during the 2002-2003 season died in the Friday crash and his 
friend, Martel Fernandez, died a day later, Zap2it.com 
reported. Five others along with the pilot were hospitalized.
The small plane owned by Santos' father went down Friday 
during an emergency landing in Toluca, about 35 miles west 
of Mexico City. Mexican aviation officials were investigat-
ing the cause of the crash. One of the survivors told the 
newspaper, El Norte, the plane was designed to carry only 
six passengers but the teenagers convinced the pilot to let 
one more aboard, Zap2it.com said. Santos, who moved with his 
family from Mexico to Los Angeles at age 12, appeared in 
feature films as well as episodes of TV's "Law & Order," 
"Boston Public" and "American Family."
