Wish he was my Dad!
Rest in peace my old friend. I will always watch you on TV\'s Gunsmoke!!!!
R.I.P James Arness aka Matt Dillon. You were one of my favorite TV lawmen.
James was a role model for young kids like me in Gunsmoke. He did everything by the law, was a great person and friend to many. A big man with a big heart. He was second to John Wayne as the tough cowboy.
