Ricardo Montalban dies at 88 (1920 – 2009)

Ricardo Montalban of Fantasy Island and Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan fame passed away today at his home in Beverly Hills. People reports:

His son-in-law Gilbert Smith tells PEOPLE that Montalban had been in declining health for months and died from “complications of advancing age.”
“He was in peace,” said Smith, who said that the actor was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. “He will be missed.”
Montalban was proceeded in death by one year by his wife of 63 years, Gorgiana Young, the younger sister of his frequent co-star Loretta Young.
“[She is] the only love of my life,” the actor said in 2004.

What a classy, debonair guy. And I’m actually not being sarcastic for once.

Rest in Peace, Ricardo.
