Roy Kammerman died peacefully at home on February 21, 2006. He was a kind, and loving man with a wonderful sense of humor. He lived his life without judging others and gave himself everywhere to almost everyone. He lived life fully--enjoying most everything in his path. He was a happy man who showed no anger or violence to others; he welcomed strangers as friends into his life. He was a sailor, on the ocean, and on the sea of his life. He took the calm with the storms. Always steady, he was a mentor and guide to many. He wrote comedy, first for radio and then television; he published several political satires. He is survived by two of his children. We are profoundly grateful and appreciative of his beautiful caregivers who enabled a wonderful final year of his life. Thank you to his friends who have been so close and true. Memorials should be forwarded to Union Rescue Mission in Los Angeles.

  1. Dear Bonnie: I had lots of laughs with your Dad when we worked on Barney Miller and Fish – please accept my sincerest condolences – Best regards, Jerry Franks Past President, Casting Society of America

  2. I can best remember Roy from an experience I had with him immediately following his open heart surgery. The doctor suggested that when having sex, he should consider being in the bottom position. He looked up to the doctor and said, “hmmm, I always prefered the middle”. We knew he would be ok!
