Tim Donnelley RIP

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Actor Tim Donnelley, who, though he had an extensive career, was perhaps best known as sardonic paramedic Chet Kelly in the TV series “Emergency,” in 122 episodes from 1972-78, died here Sept. 19. He retired in the 1980s. He was 77.

MSTies will remember him as clone Richard in the movie in episode 811- PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR.

The website Looper has a nice retrospective.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up and Gordon for the confirmation.

    77 is still a decent lifespan, especially in the age of Covid, but it’s too bad Tim didn’t have his own clone. Who knows?

    He’s not really gone. He just went to hem up his ’70s shorts a little more.
