Praying for Roger E. Mosley family, ‘Magnum, P.I.’ star, dies after car crash

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.
