I was on vacation when I heard about Jack Lord's death. I felt so alone with my sadness because I was not able to be at my pc and share my feelings with people who also felt the sadness. Now I'm home and I've been reading all the tributes that his fans have said. I don't feel so alone anymore. I enjoyed his work, I liked to see his face,he was so very handsome. Watching him gave me pleasure. As long as Hawaii Five-O is on TV I will always have Jack to look at. So rest in peace,dear Jack, you did your job and you did it well. ALOHA AND FAREWELL SWEET JACK

I noticed that there has been information about Mort Stevens (The person who composed the Hawaii 5-O theme song.)on this site but, I haven't seen anything about The Ventures (The group that played the song.). Maybe I haven't seen the information or maybe The Ventures didn't even play the theme song so, I could be wrong. (Contrary to some rumours, The Ventures did not play the theme on the show itself. - MQ)

It was sad to hear that Jack Lord died. He was basicly one of my heros. I think that he will be greatly missed. I feel sorry for all of his relatives and close friends.He was a great man and will not be forgotten.

Great site - one of the best 5-0 pages I've seen. But we need more .wav's!
J'ville, Fl USA - Friday, January 30, 1998 at 03:46:02 (PST)
I learned more about creative filmaking when I was a kid from watching Five-0 than I ever did from film classes, or any other TV shows. Jack was slick,the production values were way ahead of their time, and the music was some of the best on TV.(Besides Star Trek) I wish Jack had done more after Five-0 ended. I'll miss him. AND his hair.

Hawii Five -0 is my favorite show, like so many others, I grew up admiring Steve McGarrett. The best way to say how much I admired him, I guess would be to say, the night I heard of his passing away I awoke shortly after falling asleep and thought, " Jack, please be in Heaven".

God Bless Jack Lord! It was so sad to hear of his passing! I wasn't even born when " Hawaii 5-0 " went on the air, but thanks to re-runs the show comes on every morning at 11 a.m. here in St. Helens! I will always miss the tough acting Steve McGarrett. " Book 'em Danno! " is a favorite phrase around here! Watching " Hawaii 5-0 " each morning hasn't been the same since learning of Jack Lord's death. My thoughts are with Marie. I wish that our police force had a bad assed cop like Steve McGarrett! I will truely miss Jack Lord and may McGarrett kick Wo Fat's ass daily! Hawaii 5-0 was - and still is - THE best show on televison.

I will always have a high regard for jack Lord as an actor. his tenacity, attention to detail and charisma made him a success in any role he played. Hawaii Five O was especially attractive since it showed pictures of Hawaii to remind us when weather is bad on the mainland that there is something good to look forward to elsewhere. It warmed you up in winter. I feel deep sorrow at Jack Lord's death especially since there never was any shows subsequent Hawaii Five O to replace it adequately. His entertainment value was irreplaceable.
New York, NY USA - Thursday, January 29, 1998 at 10:32:19 (PST)
Growing up I greatly enjoyed the cat and mouse that Jack Lord played with his nemisis Wo Fat. I always rooted for Khigh Diegh and even included a small tribute in our company web site. The site went on line Sunday and Jack passed on Wednesday and I find the timing to be ironic. There is a picture that I need to add to our site, where Wo Fat is captured and receives the stern lecture from the head of Five-0, just to round things out. It's not much of a tribute but if you are looking around, try www.phoenix-global.com and once you get past a alot of technical information about environmental equipment, look for the Wo Fat logo on the information page. It will soon be updated for Jack in memory of all the fun he gave me in my youth, whenever that may end.

My dear friend, Jack, this is one of the saddest times of my life. You will live on in my heart and mind forever.
Wantagh, NY USA - Wednesday, January 28, 1998 at 21:42:59 (PST)
the passing of jack lord is indeed sad. however, we should abandon any hope of a new hawaii 5-0. it simply would never measureup. instead we ought to focus on the more important aspects of the original like preserving it in its entirety, wave breaks before commercials and all.

Im sad of his passing
Pittsburgh, PA - Wednesday, January 28, 1998 at 10:32:02 (PST)
It is with a heavy heart that I write this tribute to "THE GREATEST" Jack Lord was my all time favorite. As a kid, I use to roll the black and white T.V. into the bedroom to watch every episode of Hawaii Five 0. It came on to late (so my parents said) to stay up and watch, but they did not have a problem with my taking the T.V into the bedroom in case I should happen to fall asleep. Well, I never fell asleep during a single episode! Five-0 is still my all time favorite show, and I am avidly taping each one from the family channel so I have them for ever. I was saddened as was the rest of the world to learn of Jack's death. I had hoped to attend one of the reunions that have been organized, and possibly meet him, but that will never happen. I'll have to live with the memory of catching a glimpse of him when I was in Hawaii and saw the taping of "V FOR VASHON". To Marie, God Bless you, and strengthen you. And to Jack, rest in peace brudda, we love ya! Aloha.

Rest in Peace Jack Lord, there is no more pain and suffering. I hope that you and Wo Fat dont get too boisterous up there, or you'll be banished to the other place!!!!! Thanks for being Steve McGarrett. Watch over Marie. aloha, Enis

Hawaii Five-0 was always a favorite of mine! In fact, it still is! I watch re-runs every day at 12:30 noon and they are just as exciting now as then. Jack Lord was not only handsome, but a great actor, and I loved watching him. On our visits to Hawaii, we always found galleries which showed his art. He will be greatly missed by not only his family, but millions of fans.
Albuquerque, NM USA - Wednesday, January 28, 1998 at 08:30:30 (PST)
May God be with you Jack. Hawaii Five-O was, and remains to be, my favorite television show of all time. I was only four years old when the pilot first aired, but I was hooked from that point on. "Do you got that mister?" Rest in peace, and god bless you. Pete
Tokyo, Japan - Wednesday, January 28, 1998 at 04:39:39 (PST)
I was born the year 5-0 began and don't really remember first runs of episodes. However, after just a few episodes on the FC, I was hooked and became a "next generation" fan with designs on visiting Hawaii some day. A few months ago I was discussing this with some friends and the subject of the upcoming 5-0 movie came up. We enjoyed casting current actors to play Danny, Chin, Duke, Frank, etc. Not a one of us could come up with a predecessor for McGarrett. To this day I still can't. Why? Simply put, Jack Lord was irreplacable in that role. No one could play it like he did. Not a one. My condolances to his wife and my admiration to her for protecting her husband's image through his twilight years.

Jack Lord's death is a bummer!

Una serie de television inolvidable, como lo fue y seguira siendo de inolvidable Jack Lord. Unforgetable tv series, as it is and will continue to be Jack Lord.

Long live Jack Lord, the toughest TV cop who ever walked a beat. May you rest in peace.

I was in England when I heard the sad news. Cannot believe it is true. Jack we all will miss you. Aloha forever and a day!
Brugg, Switzerland - Tuesday, January 27, 1998 at 05:21:44 (PST)
1968 was the year of the awesome pilot episode; I was nine years old, and I've been a huge fan ever since. The title theme, the opening sequence of images from the islands... everything about this series was unique... including the casting of Jack Lord in the lead role. He had a screen presence we'll not see again soon. "The name is McGarrett and the title in MISTER!"
Aurora, IL USA - Monday, January 26, 1998 at 21:22:17 (PST)
My wife and I were fortunate to get to meet Jack Lord "on location" during the filming of the "Draw Me A Killer" episode in June '73. Jack was very friendly and didn't mind all of the behind the scenes slides I shot during the filming. Jack told me that his wife's name was Marie too. When the filming ended that day, the Five-O crew gave us a large bowl of fruit used as a prop during one scene. Five-O is still my all time favorite T.V. series. "Peace and Aloha to Jack Lord"
Vancouver, WA USA - Monday, January 26, 1998 at 21:08:22 (PST)
5-0 has been on of my favorite TV shows of all time. I can remember as a kid when it was on Tuesday nights and on Thursday nights following The Waltons. And I even watch it today whenever I get the chance. I will always love the show. So, yes, I was very saddened to hear about Jack Lord. One thing I always appreciated about his portrayal of Steve McGarrett was his firmness and steadfastness. He never bent the rules, he was tough when he had to be, and he knew how to think. And what's more, he never gave up! I've always admired those qualities. I don't know if he was like that in real life, but the legacy he left on the airwaves will be forever remembered. Doing it right and doing it "by the book" is something we should all strive for. In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul always stood firm, did what was right and didn't take guff from nobody. Jack Lord's portrayal of Steve McGarrett is a pretty good example of that. Goodbye, Mister Lord. Thank you for giving us twelve wonderful years of excellent television drama and encouraging us every time you said "Book'em, Danno." We will miss you!
Fort Worth, TX USA - Monday, January 26, 1998 at 20:11:23 (PST)
Mahalo, Jack for your portrayal of the stoic Steve McGarret of Five-O. I remember watching the original run of the series as a teenager and now watch it faithfully in syndication on the Family Channel. See you on the "Big Island in the Sky" Aloha
Hoboken, NJ - Monday, January 26, 1998 at 16:38:43 (PST)
Jack Lord was awesome. His death was not unexpected but is a great loss to us all. Fortunately, he will live on forever in syndication. My condolences to his family, fellow cast, and fans.

My family was saddened at Jack's passing. Jack and the program Hawaii Five-O dislayed a high quality which is lacking today. I hope A&E Biography will honor him with a special. Aloha Jack
Ma USA - Monday, January 26, 1998 at 09:31:59 (PST)
I had the priviledge of meeting Jack Lord when he was on the Rose Parade float from Hawaii, I believe it was back in 1968 or '69. I was working on one of the other floats, and was the beggining at the parade on New Year's Day. He was so nice, shook my hand and gave me his autograph. I was so thrilled. I lived in Hawaii a number of years from 1974-1982, and 1988-1993 and Hawaii 5-0 was my favorite show. I was so saddened by his death-I didn't even know he was sick. My heart goes out to his wife and family. show

To Jack, Godspeed, I will miss your face and your many gifts to us all! Wishing your family comfort and peace at this difficult time. Losing you leaves a void that cannot be fill- ed. I will remember you daily when I watch your Hawaii Five-0 reruns. You are one in a trillion!!!! Love, Nancy

I am so sad about JL's passing. I can't believe it! Even though we were all aware of his age and failing health, it's still a blow. Now there was a man, people. Strong, handsome, straight as an arrow, devoted husband, gifted artist and actor, giving human being. My deepest sympathies go out to Marie. I loved Jack from afar for many years, and will never forget him. Aloha, bruddha, and mahalo. May wings of angels sing thee to thy rest.
Flat Rock, NC USA - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 18:07:14 (PST)
Awesome website!!! I've been watching Five-O since I could comprehend the word "television". That was in 1971. So, there you go, I've been an avid fan for that long and never stopped or replaced it with another t.v. show. Keep in touch and take care and remember......Jack will never be gone not only because of Hawaii Five-O, but because his spirit is very much alive. He'll be with us forever. And, for those of us who wished we could have met him, you will, for, when it is our time to go, he'll be there waiting. Aloha Jack, you gave all of us joy beyond belief with your talents as an actor, a director, a painter and a poet. My love to Marie. Jim
Orange Park, Fl U.S. - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 13:52:56 (PST)
Every time I watch an episode of Hawaii Five-O I would say "now that's a cop"! Steve McGarrett and his men could stop anyone. Jack Lord, you will be missed by so many people who would tune in for an hour and escape to Hawaii. We will miss you. Aloha.
Philadelphia, PA USA - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 12:14:24 (PST)
Jack Lord will always be remembered for his great role as the crime fighting Steve McGarrett. It is a tremendous loss and he will be missed very much. But he will still be alive every time a Hawaii Five-O episode is aired. Aloha Jack Lord, we will miss you.
Philadelphia, PA USA - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 12:02:39 (PST)
The man was a legend. I was captivated by him at the age of 10. He made the role of McGarrett real. The best show ever.
Avon, CT USA - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 10:19:33 (PST)
Of course I am saddened by the passing of Jack Lord. Wouldn't it be a nice tribute to the man that brought us so many years of quality entertainment for the Family Channel to show the program uncut?
Dunstable, Ma USA - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 07:40:40 (PST)
I was saddened to learn of the death of Jack Lord. His devotion to "Hawaii Five-0" was very evident; and his portrayal of Detective Steve McGarrett (he lent a style to the role few other actors could have), contributed to the success of the series. May Hawaii Five-0 live on and continue to swell in syndication-- like a Sunami wave. Aloha Jack.
Stoneham, MA US - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 07:03:43 (PST)
I just realized if I was giving the greatest TV cop in history a send off, it should be proper....so... Jack Lord... Aloha. thanx.
Greensboro, NC USA - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 03:36:16 (PST)
We all thought Jack wasn't doing so good. And although his passing isn't a complete shock...it still hurts a lot. The main show from my formative years as I grew up that I remember was Hawaii 5 O. The show that I screamed for some- body on national cable to pick up on syndication. Even as I attended college in the 1980's, my college mates and I talked of how McGarrett was "bad"...in a good sorta way. There will never be another show like Hawaii 5 O and that is largely because there will never be another Jack Lord as McGarrett. Loved by ladies and deeply respected by men, he defined the "perfect cop". In the days that have passed since he has died, the sense of loss has not dissapated that much. I rented Dr. No just to see some of his early work, which was very good and very quality. At any rate, let us continue to watch the series with appre- ciation and with respect. Jack Lord was one of a kind...let us be thankful he left us over 12 years of TV episodes to enjoy. TDH
Greensboro, NC USA - Sunday, January 25, 1998 at 02:54:34 (PST)
Jack Lord was a very talented actor, in spite of, that not many from the movie world saw this. But we, the fans, we know this. He built for us such a beautiful dream. And this dream has a name:McGarrett! McGarrett and his Hawaii FIVE-O will be alive forever! Thank you, Mr. Lord for this dream! In our hearts you will be alive together with McGarret forever! A big ALOHA for you! Michelle

while in college in 1967-70 our week was highlighted by buying pizza,beer and watching 5-0. now we watch every week on the fam channel. brings back great memories! there will never be another 5-0......

I was really devisated to hear of Jack Lord's passing. It is hard to believe that he is really gone. I admired him for his decidation to his work and his influence on others. Some people why not have liked him, but he was one of a kind. I just recently became more of a fan when Hawaii Five-O came back on the air during Memorial Day weekend. In closing I would just like to say, May God Bless Jack Lord and may he rest in peace.
Newport News, VA USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 20:32:54 (PST)
As a lifetime TV junkie with a fine appreciation for TV cops, Jack Lord's passing has hit quite hard. Though I lost William Conrad (Cannon) & Raymond Burr (Ironside) in recent yeas, this probably hurts the most. I never missed an episode of Five O as a young boy, and to this day I am still amazed at the authority figure that was Steve McGarret. He gave police chieftancy a credibility.
Boca Raton, FL USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 20:21:56 (PST)
I fell in love with Jack Lord the first time I saw Hawaii Five-O when I was 11. I never missed a show ever. Thanks to cable I can watch them all over again. God Bless.
Pittsburgh, PA USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 17:38:24 (PST)
I was saddened to her of Jack Lords passing. I remember him as far back as what I beleive was his first TV show which was a western called "Stoney Burke".
Philadelphia, PA USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 16:57:33 (PST)
I use to sit down with my dad and watch Hawaii Five-O when I was a child and to this day it makes me want to not miss another episode as I wanted to grow up to be someone as great as him. Jack will always be here in mine and many other hearts as a great actor that will never leave. I express my condolences to his family. The music is fantastic like Jack will always be. God Bless you.
Baraga, Mi USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 16:55:26 (PST)
I loved Hawaii Five-O when it first came out, and I still sit glued to the TV every night (except Thursday) on the Family Channel to see the reruns. I never get tired of them! Jack Lord will certainly be missed. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
Poughkeepsie, NY USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 16:27:28 (PST)
The show will never be the same now that Jack is gone. It is hard to believe that someone so tough is no longer here. Also I always thought that a trip to Hawaii might have me run into Jack walking along some beach, but sadly that will never happen.
Dunstable, Ma USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 16:21:06 (PST)
I'm saddened at the death of Jack Lord. A multi-talented man .....a man of integrity, professionalism, passion, sincerity, & complete dedication to what he believed as well as to a woman he loved. A man who wasn't afraid to walk to the beat of his own drummer. What we mortals have lost, the heavens have gained. When I watched the original Hawaii Five-O series, I was hooked. As my husband & I discovered the reruns on the Family Channel.......I was hooked again. It's a shame the TV industry just doesn't get it.....viewers want MORE shows like Hawaii Five-O. Now, as I watch the shows, I become nostalgic. Jack, thanks for all of past enjoyment & more in the years to come via video. You & McGarrett will always have a special place in our hearts.
Amarillo, TX US - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 14:26:58 (PST)
Was very sorry to hear about Mr. Lord. My husband and I are great fans of Five-0. We watched when they were on originally and we were so excited when The Family Channel started showing the reruns. McGarrett was the BEST! He will be missed.
Lexington, KY USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 08:58:13 (PST)
Was sad to see on the internet news alt.fan.hawaiifive-o page that Jack Lord had passed away. JL was great on Hawaii Five-0 He and James MacArthur were the reason I tuned in week after week to watch the show plus the beautiful scenry of the islands. I believe Mr. Lord is with the angels now and in peace and free from pain. I will always look at my taped episodes of H50 with more fondness now and always remember the joy of Jack Lord on a wonderful show. Aloha and Mahalo Mr. Lord
Athens, AL USA - Saturday, January 24, 1998 at 08:34:32 (PST)
So sorry to hear of the passing of one of my favorites, Jack Lord. Hawaii Five-O was, and still is, one of my all-time favorite shows. In the addition to the show being shown on the FAM channel in the evenings, I am fortunate to have the show run on a local channel in the mornings. Hawaii Five-O has always been on my essential list, and always will. To Mr. Jack Lord, aloha and rest in peace. Through the magic of TV, you will always be there.

Just wanted to take a moment to offer my own tribute to one of television's great icons, and one of my personal idols, Jack Lord. I discovered the show as a child when both my dad and grandmother would watch it on CBS; I remember thrilling to the scenery, the action, and that always-memorable shot of Jack Lord spinning around on the hotel terrace. In 1986, I rediscovered the show in syndication, and have been a rabid fan ever since. Now that I am older, I gained an intense appreciation for all the devotion and energy that Jack Lord brought to his performance and the show in general. Steve McGarrett is a character whose values mirror my own, and his code of ethics and sense of personal and social responsibility have greatly influenced how I conduct my own life. Jack Lord's wide array of talents speak volumes of how much he experienced and enjoyed life, and I can only hope that I can pack even 1/10th the amount of living that he did into my life. Finally, the best tribute that Hollywood and the entertainment industry can offer Jack Lord is to NOT try and remake a new version of the show; he WAS the show...let it, and him, rest in peace. Aloha, Jack Lord.....I feel like I have lost an old friend; see you on the big island someday....Mahalo

I was heartbroken to hear that Jack Lord died. I express my condelences to his wife. I hope Family Channel pays a tribute to him.

Of All The Cop Shows made in This Day And Age There's No Doubt That Hawaii 5 0 Will Be Remembered as one of the Best I Wonder has there been Any Reaction from the other Cast Members?
Fremont, CA U.S.A. - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 20:11:00 (PST)
Jack Lord was the best! My wife and I saw the original issues of 5-O and still watch the re-runs. He'll be missed...but fortunately we can still see and enjoy him and the gang on the tube. I have installed his smiling face on my computer desktop...so we can see him every time we log on.
North Hollywood, CA U.S.A. - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 19:59:17 (PST)
When I was recovering from a serious back injury which left me almost completely bedridden for a year, I used to look forward to Hawaii 5-0 in the afternoons. (You know how bad the rest of day-time TV is!) I also admired Jack Lord for his sticking with his marriage. I give my condolences to his wife, Marie, and the rest of his family. God bless you all!
Cupertino, CA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 19:53:26 (PST)
Jack Lord was a great actor, and through the role of Steve McGarrett on "Hawaii Five-O" entered television history. He will be sadly missed.
Nanticoke, PA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 19:25:43 (PST)
I finally was able to bring myself to view your webpage, and at last I was able to cry. It's good to know so many people appreciated Jack Lord, because he was really worth it. For the 10 years Hawaii Five-0 ran, it was nice to be able to watch it every week; it was like a trusted friend that rejuvenated your faith in people. And like someone already said, he's not really gone, he'll live in our hearts and minds always.
Oceanside, CA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 19:06:28 (PST)
I love watching Jack Lord and the other characters in Hawaii 5-0. I still do to this day watch it at 10:00pm. I grew up watching it in Guantanamo Bay Cuba. I'm now 42 years old and love watching it every day. I am so sorry Jack is gone. I feel safe watching the show. It makes me feel like a kid again It's a great feeling . As a kid I always wanted to go to Hawaii and my dream came true on May of last year and it was all I saw in pictures. I went to Maui for 1 week for a wedding. And I love it. I thought of Jack Lord and the series when I was there. Aloha Jack, and Mohalo for everything. To his wife may God keep you safe and my prays are with you. I'm so sad he is gone. I will continue to watch Hawaii 5-0, but now it will be a little sad for me.

The year was 1961. I was just a kid having a hard time adjusting to new surroundings, new school and tumoultuous family life. Oh, how I wanted someone who could make everything all right. Someone big & strong, courageous, moral, compassionate and kind all at the same time. Along came Stoney Burke and I fell madly in love with this hunk of a cowboy. Learning all about John Joseph Patrick (my name!) Ryan became a passion of my young life. Of course that show only lasted one season. But I kept the torch burning for Jack Lord. Then along comes Hawaii Five-0. Move over Paul McCartney & the Beatles, Jack is back! Fell in love all over again. About the time the show ended, I was working, getting married & having kids. No time for much of anything. Then last May I found Five-0 on the Family Channel and the Web I was hooked all over! Reading all the articles about Jack made me realize what a Gem he was: a devoted husband, bold adventurer, Talented artist & entertainer, hard working role model, one of those rare gentlemen who loves his God, country, and fellow man and didn't care who knew it. Also, having experience many deaths in my family, when I heard he was ill, I knew it was time not to waste time and tell this wonderful man how much joy and pride he brought to me and others. I wrote him a letter last year and through my prayers and tears it gave me consolation that I was one of many fans who got to tell him, "Well done! Thank you". There is also consolation in knowing that Jack is now face to face with the Creator whom he acknowledged gave him all those fantastic talents, and being a perfectionist, now knows true perfection and unconditional love. Keep a place for us in Paradise, Jack. We'll be coming to join you after awhile. And as the Irish blessing goes, "May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows your dead!" God love ye, Johnny me boy!

I have long been a fan of Hawaai Five-0. I was deeply sadden at the death of Jack Lord this week. I still had hopes of a Five-0 2-hour movie...as far fetched as that might sound to some. All those other less deserving series had 2-hour comebacks...Why not the Five-O crew. I am sorry for his family's loss. Long live reruns...

For Five-O fans, I think January 22, 1998 the day the world learned of Jack Lord's death will be a day that we will always remember. I used to furtively stay up late as a kid growing up in Malaysia watching Hawaii Five-O--yes, Five-O was broadcast that far away! It must have had a profound effect on me, because years later, at a job interview, I was asked who I would like to see be president of the United States, and I said, Steve McGarrett of course! I didn't get the job, but I have always retained the absolute moral integrity that Jack Lord represented. I am in mourning and I am going to wear black everyday until I am done. Aloha Jack!

It's sad to see an icon like Jack Lord pass away. I grew up admiring him. He was the type of classic cop that new right from wrong... and was never tempted by greed. I can only hope to show that kind of admiration to my daughters as we watch the shows together. The classic line, "Book'em, Dano!" will always bring a smile when I hear it.
San Jose, CA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 16:37:28 (PST)
I'm sad to hear of Jack Lord's passing. As a 6 year old when Hawaii Five-O came on the air, he became my instant hero. I have remained a Jack Lord fan since. He could out cool "Fonzie." I visited Hawaii in 1990. The first this I did at the Honolulu airport was look in a phone book to see if Jack Lord was listed. I'm positive the only reason the James Bond people did not have him back for more movies after Dr. No was because they saw the potential of his Felix Leiter outshining Sean Connery's Bond. Rest in Peace Mr. Lord. I'm sure your are giving a great example of how to be cool to those in Heaven.
San Jose, CA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 16:14:48 (PST)
I used to bug my dad to death trying to get him to explain the plotline to me during the commericals. Like many fans I have traveled to Hawaii and traced a few of McGarrett's steps. Jack Lord's belief in his role was apparent in each episode. Can you picture the look of disgust on his face when he learned of some sickening crime? We will miss you Jack, aloha
Knoxville, TN - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 16:03:45 (PST)
one of the most unpleasant experiences of the aging process is that you are so familiar with more and more people who pass away. Jack Lord was an icon on a solid television series. (of which there are so few any more) when you grow up watching such a series you feel you have lost a close friend. as a big fan of five-o i am sure mr lord would not mind me calling him my friend. he conducted his life as he did his acting career, with class and a quiet grace. hawaii and the rest of the country has lost a good one. my deepest sympathy goes out to his wife, family and friends. may his spirit live in five-o reruns forever!!

I heard the sad news about Jack Lord about 7:30am on NPR yesterday morning. Bummer. The first song I listened to that day was McGarrett's Theme from my prized Mort Steven's Hawaii Five-O album I found sealed at "In Your Ear" while attending college in Boston. I used to get up at 1:00 am every Sunday to catch the two back-to-back episodes they ran while at school. Every time I watch Hawaii Five-O I always tried to imagine how he is and what he looks like. It's truly going to be strange realizing he's no longer with us. Aloha Jack Lord. See you on the real Big Island.

It is so hard to believe that this seemingly invincible rock of a man has actually passed away. I have been such a fan over the last seven years (when I was first introduced to Five-O -- thank God for syndication and my 200-episode collection). I have viewed Steve McGarrett, personified by Jack Lord, as such an inspiration, such a solid role model for integrity and all that this world should be. He never made deals and he never gave up. I think Jack was that way right down to the last. God Bless him, he will truly be missed.
White Salmon, WA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 15:41:46 (PST)
I remember as a boy of 10 seeing the first Five-O episode, and continued watching it as a teenager. I loved McGarrett's sense of morality, right and wrong and hard nosed attitude toward crime. He influenced me even more so than my father. I loved the show so much that as I grew older I realized that Hawaii Five-O had a definate impact on my decision to join the USAF as a Security Policeman, then later as a Police Officer after I was discharged. I'm saddened to learn that my mentor and favorite actor of all time has passed away. I feel a sense of emptiness in my heart today. I'm hoping to see some recent photos of him now that he's gone. Most of what I've seen is 20 years old or more. My prayers go to his wife and all family members everywhere. (Did he have any children?) Thanks for the memories Jack....It was AWESOME!
Mankato, MN USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 15:03:36 (PST)
I am saddened to hear that Jack Lord has passed away. He was a great actor who will always be remembered for his superb portrayal of McGarrett. It's too bad that he wasn't alive or healthy long enough to make a Hawaii Five-O movie.
Vancouver, BC Canada - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 14:56:32 (PST)
I am 46 years old and watched 50 when it was on prime time and now I watch it on cable. Really enjoy the show and wish that the station would do a 50 marathon one day.
Olathe, KS USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 13:25:32 (PST)
I use to watch Five-O as a kid - I thought it was great then and as I watch in now on cable I still think it was great. Jack Lord made the show what it was - exciting, interesting, and intelligent. He will be missed. My prayers go out for him and his family.
Jessup, MD USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 13:20:47 (PST)
Back in 1968, I was working at WTOP-TV (CBS) Washington, DC. A new show, "Hawaii-50" was fed on the network in prime time. However, the station's program director thought the show was a loser and had us delay-broadcast the episodes at 11:30 pm. est. That year Hawaii 50 ended up being the only show on CBS in the top 10! Jack Lord made the show be in the top 10...and he has made it be in the top 10 of all shows for all of us.
Washington, DC USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 11:52:52 (PST)
Five-O came on the air before I was even born. I began watching the show in repeats when I was in high scholl; not just because it was a great show, but also because of Jack Lord's charisma which jumped off the screen and the manifest love he had for the role. He took it seriously, while at the same time having lots of fun with it. He'll be missed.
Framingham, MA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 11:36:43 (PST)
I am 18 years old and unlike my peers, I love to watch old TV shows. I only watched few Hawaii Five-O episodes. The few that I did watch were very interesting to me. Jack Lord was a brilliant actor, along with the others. He will be missed in my family, and I pray that his soul is with the Lord.
Warner Robins, GA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 11:23:57 (PST)
My heart goes out to Jack Lord's wife and their close friends. he will be greatly missed but as long as Hawaii Five-O is still being televised, Jack Lord's memory will always live on. Especially to die hard fans of the show. I've loved this show since it first started in 1968. ALOHA!
Tacoma, WA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 10:30:59 (PST)
Fond memories. The first "real" man my friends and I fell in love with while in high school. Beautiful in aspect and beautiful in strength. They say art mirrors the soul. Would appreciate it very much if samples of his artwork could be included in this homepage.
Edmonton, AB Canada - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 09:36:31 (PST)
I'm am very saddened by the passing of Jack Lord. He was a great actor and was never recognized for it by his peers. Without him, Hawaii Five-O would have been a flash in the pan. Have any of you ever seen him "A Patriot's Story?," a film shown at Williamsburg VA? It's great and is available through the gift shop at the Williamsburg Visitor's Ctr. (I'm sorry I don't have the phone #, but I bet, now, Williamsburg probably has a web site). I read that Jack requested not to have a funeral. Does anyone know if he was being buried or cremated? My whole family & I are disappointed with the poor coverage the entertainment shows gave his passing. Does anyone else feel this way? Let's all keep the image of that suave and moral Hawaiian "policeman" in the forefront of our minds - Jack Lord will live on forever. ChshrPat@aol.com

Cable was just coming into infancy when "Five-O" had its original run. We couldn't get cable, so "Five-O" was certainly "Must See TV". I'll miss Jack Lord. That show made me want to visit Hawaii more than any other place I'd ever dreamed about going. I wonder if it will surface now, but I rented a tape in the late '80s that was a compliation of various comic shorts put together by stars. Dan Akroyd's bit was called something like the Eternal Church of Hawaii Five-O. They had pictures of Jack all over the place like Jesus. The thing that sticks out most about the piece was the parody of "Were You There when They Crucified my Lord", "Were You There when They Buried the Jack Lord". Akroyd shouted from the pulpit: "Seal off the universe and patch me through to God." Aloha, Bruddah.

I was only 10 years old when Five-O first aired. My lasting image of Jack Lord is at the beginning of each episode when you would see the waves,etc, then you would see the camera zoomed in on Jack Lord from behind, on top of a landing. Then he would turn around "Starring Jack Lord". I was blessed to grow up in an era of good television viewing. Not too much of that now. I vaguely remember "Stony Burke". So I don't remember the main actor being Jack Lord. I'm going to rent "Dr. No". I will miss him in showbiz.

Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett was an excellent role model for me. Fortunately, he will be immortal in a way via his excellent twelve-year work on "5-0."
New York, NY USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 03:26:21 (PST)
I will miss Jack Lord. He was the best part of TV. Hawaii 5 O was one of the greatest TV shows ever. That show wished that I lived in Hawaii. From almost becoming Captain Kirk to his role in James Bond. He was a great actor and you just wished you could be in his shoes. But no one will ever fill those shoes. Goodbye Jack!
Pitcairn, PA USA - Friday, January 23, 1998 at 01:33:38 (PST)
Aloha, bruddah, aloha. I was shocked and saddened to hear of Mr. Lord's passing, he and McGarrett had become one of the few remaining true heroes in my life. McGarrett and the Hawaii Five-O squad went to bat all the way for the victims depicted in their plot-driven adventures, and I'm sure Jack was no different in real life. He is a true role model. He will be missed, but will live forever on film... if only Steve could be patched through Central to Williams one more time! Aloha, Boss.

JACK, WE HARDLY KNEW YOU... To say I,m saddened is to say to little, Jack Lord was everything we hoped we could be, uncorruptable, unflapable, honest, and just genraly an all around good guy, hearing of his sad and sudden death shocked me today when I heard it. He seemed to me that he would last forever, Even though I never got to see the show when it was on it's original run, I had been a big fan ever since I first saw it around 1990, I only wish thre was some way to convay my saddness, and the saddness that all of his family, friends and fans must feel today, I wish there was some way we could have a memorial service as fans. Without Jack Lord there would be no Hawaii Five-O, he WAS Mc Garrett. I saw the forecast for tommorow in Hawaii, it said there were going to be sunny skies, how ironic when this is a dark day. Maybe he can look down on us and say "Don't worry about it, ain't no big thing bruddah " Perhaps we should remember him as best we can, after all he will always live on in syndication and in out hearts and minds forever, and just keep the office light on in the Ioliani Palace.Aloha & Mahalo Boss,and God Bless

Jack will be missed, and he is an icon like Kamehaheha the Great, which signifies all of Hawaii. There will be no equal to Jack, but showed other TV cops one thing: charisma. May this be his last Aloha from the earth, and his soul should live on, for those that emulate his charisma.

He has been a part of our lives sinse Five-O began in 68' He will be missed, by us and all of his fans. We hope CBS will work a deal,with "Goerge Litto" in filming a new Hawaii Five-O movie;as a tribute in Jack's memorey. Sincerily Cathy & Vern

Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett was the last of the TV Cops one could totally admire & respect. It sounds like he wasn't that much different in "real life." Like so many other fans, I'm sure, I cried in my car on the way to work this morning when I heard the sad news. Aloha & Mahalo - may you live in the hearts of your fans and those who loved you forever.

Jack Lord was a hero. He brought to life what was right and wrong during the time period. He was a role model, and it's sad to see someone who seems so immortal pass away. The character of Steve McGarret was Mr. Establishment, and that is why he is MY hero. Goodbye Jack. We'll miss you.

Since 1968 I watched every episode of H50 and now the reruns are even better. The show caused me to physically go to the islands in 1992 and I was smitten and always will be. Jack was perfect professional at his craft. He will be missed.
Glen Mills, PA USA - Thursday, January 22, 1998 at 20:41:05 (PST)
Jack Lord as McGarrett -- there will never be another like him. Corny, predictable sometimes? Sure, whatever -- I don't care, give me more! I'm so thankful for the twelve years' legacy of scenes he left. I figure, at some 280 episodes of 50 minutes each, that amounts to about 120 2-hour movies. What an achievement. Thanks, Jack Lord!

Aloha, bruddah: The only television cop worth watching. A great show with a great actor. A show that conveyed more than action and island beauty but a message with every weekly installment. A show that mixed sensuality, vice, depravity, and morality without forgetting which of the four was most important. A class show by a class guy who led a class life. Marie, all of the ohana extends its sympathies. Mahalo for the support you gave to Jack for so many years. He will be dearly missed. May the series reign in re-runs.

McGarrett was the toughest cop on t.v. He was a no nonsense, take charge, always gets his man kind of a guy. The 70's cop shows were full of men like him. What's with the t.v. cops of the nineties? Nothin but a bunch of whimps! No comparison.

Levittown, Pa USA - Thursday, January 22, 1998 at 06:18:23 (PST)
I was an avid fan of the show back in the '70s. I must be truthful in saying that in looking back, the show was an insult to the intelligence of the tv viewer. The Hawaii Five-O staff always came out ahead in the end. It is absolutely amazing how always in the last and I mean literally, in the last 4 minutes of the show,all the pieces came together to solve the crime. I always knew when the hour was coming to an end by the sudden and unexpected pieces falling into place. I find this insulting. Today's police dramas (e.g. Law & Order) have a lot more class and intelligence in their script and producting.

Love your web page. The reviews are essential guides and help steer me to must see episodes. They're very well done. Also, after seeing two of the Amanda McBroom as Sandi Welles episodes I decided to do a net search on her name and found a web site. She's a professional singer. No, I'm not related nor have any professional contact with her! The final Sandi episode was last night, and I watched it, again, thanks to the guide. Keep up the fine work.
