I was very sorry to hear of John Hillerman's passing. He was the perfect foil to Magnum's goofy persona on "Magnum PI," a show both my son and I still enjoy watching. He was a fine actor and will be missed!

John was a master at his craft. All of his performances were excellent. His portrayal of Higgins on Magnum PI was outstanding. A great talent has left the stage, but will forever be remembered. AJ

What a great actor. From the natural range of his Texan accent in Blazing Saddles to his ultimate role as the quintessential Brit Jonathan Quayle Higgins in Magnum P. I., John Hillerman was always entertaining. I wish I had the pleasure of meeting him. Rest In Peace.

Nobody could have portrayed Jonathan Quail Higgins in Magnum PI as good as you did. Very very fine acting! I thought you were really British for years! When I heard of your passing, after a moment of sadness, I said OH MY GOD in my best Higgins voice. Rest in Peace, Mr Hillerman. You will always be our beloved Higgy Baby in our hearts.

I, of course, loved him in Magnum P.I. In fact he played a few roles in that show. Higgins had brothers that were from Texas and Ireland. I loved the character he played in an episode of Little House On the Prairie called "Harriet's Happenings". Going to miss an extremely talented actor. My condolences to the family.

I spoke with John so many times. Such a terrific person. His words are in my head today as I make decisions about my life. He told me as he sold his home in LA and moved to Lake Arrowhead, you just know when it is time to move on. I will not forget our conversations or his incredible calm voice and his laugh. God bless all that he leaves behind.
