Dick Tufeld – Losing a Voice From the Past

Who’s gonna warn Will Robinson of danger . . .

Dick Tufeld queitly passed away Sunday, Jan. 22 at his home in Studio City. He was 85. Most people won’t know who he was or what a big part he most likely played in their nerdy lives. Dick voiced the B-5 robot in the original Lost in Space television show and the 1998 movie. His work is a list of all the scifi shows that paved the way for today’s nerdy airwaves, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Time Tunnel, Lost in Space, The Fantastic Four, Spiderman and His Amazing Friends, and the one that really hit home with this NerdBastard, Thundarr the Barbarian.

Survivors include his brother, Howard, sons Bruce and Craig, daughters Lynn and Melissa and grandchildren Jason, Amanda, Sammy, Tali, Aiden and Clara Rose. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at Mount Sinai, Hollywood Hills.

Dick’s voice and therefore his memory will always live on in Nerd history, as nerds pass on their favorites to the next generation, Dick’s voice will be there, warning them of danger.
