A veteran actor whose longtime association with the Screen Actor's Guild found him the recipient of the prolific Ralph Morgan Award for Distinguished Service to the Hollywood Branch of SAG, Ron Soble's decade-long association with the guild followed years as a popular actor in television and film as well as a notable athletic career. A native of Chicago, Soble took to sports early in life, becoming a Golden Gloves champion in 1944 before moving on to play football with the University of Michigan. His early acting career marked by numerous Western appearances, Soble made his film debut in 1959's Al Capone before appearing onscreen in such beloved John Wayne oaters as True Grit (1969) and Chisum (1970). On the small screen, Soble continued his career as a cowboy with frequent appearances on Rawhide, The Virginian, and The Monroes (the actor would also parlay his spurs into science fiction territory with an appearance as Wyatt Earp in an episode of the original Star Trek series). Moving into a more modern era (at least at the time) with appearances in Charlie's Angels, ChiPs, and Knight Rider, Soble's later roles in such features as Pterodactyl Woman From Beverly Hills (1994) and Deuce Bigalo: Male Gigalo (1999) were a healthy indicator that after years in the business Soble had not lost his sense of humor. Following an extended battle with both lung and brain cancer, Ron Soble died in Los Angeles on May 2, 2002. He was 74.
