American actor who played the low-key role of Chester in the TV series, "Gunsmoke," from 1955-1964. He was talented, versatile and politically aware. Weaver was recognized as a star in his own series, "McCloud," in 1970. In total, he starred in seven TV series and won one Emmy in 1959. As of 2000, he has been married to Gerry for 55 years; they have three kids and three grandkids.

Intent on his ecological crusade, Weaver founded the Colorado-based Institute of Ecolonomics in 1993, designed to link technologies with business to create a helpful and healthful environment. He and Gerry live in Ridgeway, CO in a solar-powered house built from recycled tires and cans with no heating ducts or air conditioning vents: all natural. He is the author of "All the World's a Stage."

The actor died at age 81 of cancer at his home in Ridgeway, Colorado on February 24, 2006.
