    I know not many of our younger members will remember him or the series that made him a megastar; Gunsmoke which ran from 1955 to 1975. Most of us here who do remember it likely saw the show in reruns. James Arness, Iconic 'Gunsmoke' Lawman, Dead at 88 | PopEater.com

    James Arness Played Marshall Matt Dillion inthe show.

    My mom and dad were big fans of the show when it was on back in the day. It's nice to see that some people can still die of natural causes.
    I had no idea that Peter Graves was his brother.

    I can barely remember watching Gunsmoke with my grandfather as a kid. Marshall Dillon was a hard character to forget.

    Gunsmoke was a timeless classic. I'm sad to hear of his passing. :(
