Loved watching Rin Tin Tin!! – Wish some of those old tv shows would be re-run somewhere – Lassie, My Friend Flika, Fury, Circus Boy, The Lone Ranger, The Roy Rogers show, – I could go on for quite a while – They all had a life lesson in them that might do some good for many kids today

Rin Tin Tin was a great show and as a child actor, Lee Aaker was realky good. Too bad today’s kids didn’t have more wholesome shows to watch. Shows like that always had a positive message for the viewers to learn from.

Oh, no. How heartbreaking. He is certainly remembered by those of us “of a certain age”. May he rest in peace. And Paul – you are one of God’s angels here on earth. Please PM if funds are needed. Thank you very much for what you do.

RIP Lee……thank you for the entertainment and memories. It saddens me that you were alone when God called you home. NO ONE should leave this world alone.

Pam Rusk
Rest in peace sir. And thank you for your service.

Aaker died Alone, Crawford’s got Alzheimer’s, Paul’s got health issues – are there any child/teen stars of the 1950’s that are doing ok in their golden years? The kids of the first TV Generation grew up with these stars. Breaks my heart.

Vita Sabella
He sure does, more so than anyone. Thank you Paul for your efforts. He certainly deserves it all.

This may sound cold hearted but it’s not intended that way. The 1st thing you need to do is ensure that the body is held in tact. My grandmother passed away in Saint Petersburg Florida several years ago. She already paid for a plot next to my grandfather. When I was notified of her passing approximately 2 years after it occurred, I found out that she was declared indigent and the body was turned over to a local crematorium that went ahead and cremated her and dumped her ashes in a mass plot. Even though she had paid for her plot there was no way I could do anything to get her remains to her grave. The best you may able to do is get a marker or stone or plaque posted somewhere for him to be remembered.

Rest in Peace Trooper Rusty. I never missed watching Rin Tin Tin.

I loved that show as a child. He was such a cutie pie. I’m so sad he was listed as unclaimed! But God has claimed him and he is now at peace. God bless you for making things right for him. RIP Lee.
