R.I.P. Merlin Olsen

Today Merlin Olsen died at the age of 69.  Many of you may recognize the name from his pro football career with the Los Angeles Rams.  I remember him as Jonathan Garvey from the television show, Little House on the Prairie.

Thanks for the childhood memories Merlin Olsen.


  1. Ohhhh, that makes me sad...I watched Little House every day right after school until we had to go to the barn to milk cows. Sometimes, if we were VERY lucky my dad would let us finish the show and go to the barn after...not very often...that is actually a GOOD memory. Things like TV were/was special back then...ahhh the 70's hehe!

  2. oh! This makes me sad! He was one of my fav. actors on that show...heck, they were all my favorites...except all the Olsons...didn't like them. Well, Nels was ok. And I'm rambling...

  3. I didn't know this. How sad. I loved Little House. It was on Wednesday evening at 7:00 so we got to watch it after supper was over. Such a sweet man. Thank you for tell me about this. RIP Merlin Olsen.
    God Bless.

  4. That is sad. I grew up watching Little House on the Prarie.

  5. Awwww...that makes me so sad. I love Little House on the Prairie.

    Thanks for sharing.
