Peter Breck, who played a son of ranch owner Barbara Stanwyck on the 1960s Western "The Big Valley," has died. He was 82.
Breck died Monday in Vancouver, British Columbia, after a long illness, his wife of 51 years, Diane, announced on the website The Big Valley Writing Desk.
" I lost my darling husband this past Monday - Feb. 6. He has been in hospital since Jan.10. I never dreamed that he would not be coming back home. However he fought his illness for so many years - he tried so hard," she wrote.
