11 Sep, 2014

KielĀ dies at St. Agnes Medical Center in Los Angeles. Kiel’s cause of death is unknown. Keil’s family posts on Facebook:

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that Richard has passed away, just three days shy of his 75 th birthday. Richard had an amazing joy for life and managed to live every single day to the fullest. Though most people knew of him through his screen persona, those who were close to him knew what a kind and generous soul he was. His family was the most important thing in his life and we are happy that his last days were spent surrounded by family and close friends. Though his passing was somewhat unexpected, his health had been declining in recent years. It is nice to think that he can, once again, stand tall over us all. With love,

The Kiel Family
