I'm surprised no one has mentioned Michael Landon yet. Born Eugene Orowitz, he changed his name when going into acting (to get a name that suited his career better), and was well known on such TV shoes as 'Bonanza' as Little Joe Cartwright, 'Highway to Heaven' as Jonathan Smith, and, most notably, Charles 'Pa' Ingalls, on Little House on the Prairie, for a decade. Little House was his "baby" as often said, as he also produced the show. He was very close with his "Television Family". He was married 3 times, adopted 3 children, and had 6 biological children.

Michael was born on October 31, 1936 and died in July 1991 from inoperable pancreatic cancer.
