Sad about Lee Aaker. Paul Petersen wrote that Lee Acker died alone, unclaimed and indigent. Petersen is working on getting him a decent burial since Lee Aaker served in the Air Force. Lee Aaker was in some films, The Greatest Show On Earth, Jeopardy, High Noon besides appearing in many 1960's tv shows besides Rin Tin Tin  Hope that Petersen is successful in seeing that Lee Aaker gets his respectful, proper burial.

RIP Lee Aaker
