BEN CASEY Tribute to Vince Edwards

I’m 32 and a big fan of Vince Edwards because I was a small girl. My mom and I watched reruns of BEN CASEY in the 1980′s when I was growing up. Vince was a hunk as nicely as a wonderful actor. My heart is heavy since we lost him considerably too soon. I really like and miss you Vince. Here are some distributors’ emails you can email and request that Vince’s two television series “BEN CASEY” and “MATT LINCOLN” be released on dvd. Thank you.

    Thanks for your tribute. I just learned just moments ago that he is no longer living. In looking at the old photos I now realize why, as a young girl, I found him to be such a heart throb. He’s my favorite television actor of all times. I would like so desperately to see some of the old Ben Casey episodes. I used to comment on the weekly shows in my diary!

    @JCGreenEyes Hi. I know someone who has a lot of Jack’s guestings. I tried to send you a message, but it would not go through.

    @oceandiver75 My pleasure!

    @jsbach15 Thank you very much for taking the time to share that wonderful memory. Vince is my favorite actor. There is a video of him on The Mike Douglas show from Feb. 1969. It showcases what a warm,. genuine, class guy he was. Also, a very underrated actor who was typecast after Ben Casey for being “too good in the role”. The Mike Douglas show with Vince can be seen on youtube.

    @jsbach15 . Hi jsbach . Thank you so much for sharing your story about a very special , caring , warm , loving man !!!!

  11. jsbach15 says:

    I was eating in a local restaurant years ago when a man slowly walked by the booth in which I was sitting. He paused ever so slightly, looking directly at me, and I looked directly at him. Within an instant, he knew, that I recognized who he was. Never a word crossed between us, but the knowledge of knowing the adoration of a fan was ever present. That man in the restaurant was Vince Edward.

  20. Rigelcentauri58 says:

    @spacepatrolman He was inspiring: A real Doctor who cared about fellow men, fought against illness, tried to cure people¨s mind, heart and spirit not putting money or prestige first. I wish i could be or have a Doctor like him.

    @oceandiver75 Beautiful poem. Thank so much for sharing. I know hundreds of thousands like you and I love and miss Vince.

  25. oceandiver75 says:

    God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
    a person who loves, who cares,
    who encourages and lifts people up,
    someone who touches each life
    and makes a difference in the world,
    because ripples of kindness flow outward
    as each person you have touched, touches others.
    Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
    because you are a special treasure
    for all that you’ve done.

    Happy 82 nd Birthday Vince up there in Heaven !!!!

    I love you and miss you
