Stargate SG-1's Don S. Davis has died; he was 65.

Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi of Stargate: Atlantis today spoke to Monsters and Critics on the phone in a conference call, and noted the passing of the actor he cited as a wonderfully warm and talented human being. 

Joe Mallozzi remembered the actor: 'Hellooo, Jooooe!' It was a greeting Id come to associate with the man, a good-natured, self-deprecating southern gent who always had a story to tell but, more than anything, always wanted to hear how YOU were doing."

Mallozzi has posted the special entry about Davis in his ongoing blog: Thoughts and Tirades, Rants and Ruminations.  MALLOZZIS_TRIBUTE

Don S. Davis, who played Maj. Gen. George Hammond on SCI FI Channel's Stargate SG-1 for seven seasons, died June 29 after suffering a heart attack.

The family is requesting any donations be made to the American Heart Association.

Davis made several guest appearances on the show's spinoff, Stargate: Atlantis.

David also portrayed Maj. Garland Briggs on Twin Peaks. He also worked on MacGyver, where he met Richard Dean Anderson, a fellow SGA actor.

Mallozzi noted that Davis would appear in "Stargate: Continuum", the upcoming movie.
