Roger E. Mosley, an actor who appeared in the iconic 1980s crime drama “Magnum, P.I.,” died Sunday due to injuries suffered in a car accident last week, his daughter announced. He was 83.
Mosley, who played helicopter pilot Theodore “TC” Calvin on the hit series, died surrounded by family. He had been paralyzed from the shoulders down and in critical condition since the crash, his daughter Ch-a Mosley wrote on Facebook.
“We could never mourn such an amazing man. He would HATE any crying done in his name. It is time to celebrate the legacy he left for us all,” his daughter wrote.
Fellow actor Richard Brooks paid respect to Mosley on Sunday.
“We’ve lost another great actor & legend today,” Brooks wrote on Twitter.
“I enjoyed working with Roger so much. He really came thru for me when I produced my first play. He was the best. Condolences to the Mosley family
Mosley starred in the show alongside Tom Selleck for eight seasons from 1980 until 1988.
