Weaver received an Emmy for his role as Deputy Chester Goode in “Gunsmoke” and received nominations for his role as McCloud, the Western detective who took his crime-fighting ways — and his horse — to New York City.
Weaver’s acting career spanned more than a half century, and featured him in such roles as the driver hunted by a faceless truck driver in “Duel,” and in television series stretching from the original “Dragnet” to “The Simpsons.”
Weaver starred in nine television series, including “Gentle Ben,” and was in 40 motion pictures, but it was as Chester and McCloud that he was perhaps best remembered.
