Yes, Shepard Book passed away today at age 71. Ron Glass is gone.

The Firefly cast paid tribute today. But this was only Glass's more recent role.

Ron Glass was known for his role in Barney Miller.

Glass was born in Evansville, Ind. and went on to study drama and literature at the University of Evansville. He began his career in Hollywood in episodes of “Sanford and Son,” “Hawaii Five-O” and “All in the Family” in the early ’70s.

In 1975 Glass found his breakout role in “Barney Miller,” set in an NYPD station. His character was a dapper and ambitious intellectual, obsessed with launching his career as a writer. The role earned Glass a Primetime Emmy nomination in 1982 in the supporting actor category.

Barney Miller was fantastic. Dry humor, but on point. Abe Vagoda was classic. Sad to hear. It's been a tough year for celebrities.

Kaylee: How come you don't care where you're going?

Shepherd Book: because how you get there is the worthier part.
