The Facebook page for The Knight Rider Companion posted this message earlier today, confirming that Glen A. Larson has died at the age of 77
"It is my sad duty to inform you that Glen A. Larson, the father of Battlestar Galactica, The Fall Guy, Buck Rogers, Knight Rider, and so many other memorable worlds imagined and rendered in the 80's has passed away today.
The world has lost a guiding light who inspired it and a true visionary whose passion for life, freedom, and family will continue to live on."
It is with great sadness that we learn of this news. Larson has done much for the entertainment world. He gave us Knight Rider, but also many many other shows. Knight Rider NL offers it's greatest respect and condolences to the Larson family and everybody involved. A great man is gone forever.
