Don Galloway was a dapper, pleasingly symmetrical television actor who, for all his comedic prowess and sitcom potential, found most of his fame playing earnest lawmen on the gritty crime dramas of the 1960s and '70s. After getting his start on "Tom, Dick, and Mary," an experimental swinging roommates comedy, his career took a turn for the heavier with a spate of guest spots on several boundary-breaking action series. Most famously, he landed on "Ironside" (1967-'75), a long-running detective thriller with a twist--he starred as a debonair upstart who aided a disabled crackerjack police consultant (Raymond Burr) in his obsessive methods of law enforcing. Forever associated with the image of pushing the wheelchair-bound Burr across an urban cityscape, Galloway became the elder actor's protégé off-screen as well as on-screen, often reuniting with him for legal-minded TV specials well into the '90s. In the meantime, he was also a familiar face among the sudsy soaps and glitzy game shows of the 1980s and kept many avid TV watchers glued to their sets with his delectably viscid performance as the suave Dr. Buzz Stryker on two seasons of the enduring daytime staple "General Hospital." Rather fittingly, the perennial TV cop was awarded a California-based reserve-deputy position shortly before his show-biz retirement in '95. After his departure from acting, he began a latter-day career as a staunchly Libertarian journalist for the New Hampshire Union Leader, a job he held nearly until his 2009 death of a stroke at age 71.
