I am sorry to hear of the passing of Kent McCray, an important figure in the history of Bonanza, as well as Little House on the Prairie.

Here is an article from Halloween of 2016, on what would have been Mike Landon's 80th birthday. It includes an interview with Kent McCray, who discusses his long working relationship and close friendship with Landon.

The Brother That He Never Had: Kent McCray Remembers the Multi-Talented Michael Landon on his 80th Birthday
by Jeremy Roberts


Kent McCray rose to prominence as an associate producer with Bob Hope during the late 1950s, traveling the world and filming specials during his well-received USO tours. McCray befriended Landon in 1962 on the set of Bonanza in lieu of a fiery introductory argument that nearly resulted in fisticuffs.

The genial, soft-spoken, and down-to-earth McCray never looked back, working with the actor all the way up until his final project, Us [1991], a change of pace drama about a wrongly-imprisoned man renewing complicated family ties.

Over the course of two engrossing phone interviews, Landon’s best man shares heartfelt and sometimes painful memories about an inimitable human being whose contagious, high-pitched laugh never failed to brighten his day.
