The actor Roger Mosley who played T.C. died in a car accident
Mosley, who played helicopter pilot Theodore "T.C." Calvin in the original Magnum PI series, passed away on Sunday from injuries sustained in a car accident last week. According to his family, the 83-year-old actor is paralyzed after a car crash in the Lynwood area.
His family surrounded him as he transcended peacefully. Such an amazing man could never be mourned. Any crying done in his name would make him furious. We should celebrate the legacy he left behind. You are my hero, daddy. I loved you too. I am strong, but my heart is heavy.
During Magnum PI's run on CBS from 1980 to 1988, Mosley's character was a former Marine who operated a helicopter and tour company in Hawaii. In addition to flying Tom Selleck's private investigator around the island, he assisted him in solving cases.
As of 2019, Mosley appeared on the rebooted version of Magnum P.I. as well as many television shows and movies, including "Sanford and Son", "Night Court," "Kung Fu" and "Sanford and Son." In an episode of "Las Vegas," Selleck played the owner of the Montecito casino, and he reunited with his former co-star.
Despite his role as T.C., Mosley received fan mail and autograph requests. In his childhood and adulthood, Roger Mosley lived in Los Angeles. For close to 60 years, he was married to Antoinette Laudermick. They had three children together.
