David Conant Ford Obitaury

The New York Times, August 10, 1983

Sam Evans was one of my favorite characters from DS and that was mainly due to David Ford's portrayal of him. Mark Allen, the first sam Evans, was kind of a dopey version of the character while Ford seemed more laid back and natural for the part of drama queen Maggie's father. Ford, like Thayer David, died relatively young as did DS alumni Joel Crothers (at the age of 44 in 1985) who played Joe Haskell, among other characters, on the show.
