Robert Prosky

Robert Prosky, the actor best known as Sgt. Stan Jablonski on on the TV crime drama Hill Street Blues, has died of complications from a heart procedure at the age of 77. He stepped on the role the desk sergeant in Hill Street Blues after the death of Michael Conrad in 1984.

Mr. Prosky appeared in more than 200 plays on Broadway and with Arena Stage, a regional theater company in Washington. On Broadway, Prosky's credits included Glengarry Glen Ross and A View from the Bridge. He also completed a long run in Michael Frayn's play Democracy.
More recently, Prosky appeared with two of his sons in Arthur Miller's play, The Price, in Philadelphia. He appeared in 38 films including Mrs. Doubtfire, Dead Man Walking and The Natural. A native of Philadelphia, Mr. Prosky studied economics at Temple University and served in the U.S. Air Force.
His son Stefan Prosky said Tuesday. "Everybody knows him as a fairly famous actor. My brothers and I know him as a marvelous father."

To quote Sgt. Stan Jablonski "Let's do it to them before they do it to us".
Good Night Mr Prosky
Stay Tuned
