Fans of television during the 1960s through 1980s certainly remember the impact that Larry Hagman had on the entertainment industry. The legacy of the actor, who died on the day after Thanksgiving at the age of 81, will live on through his extraordinary body of work.
Hagman first rose to stardom via the character Anthony Nelson in the I Dream of Jeannie sitcom. Subsequently he landed the role of J.R. Ewing in the dramatic series Dallas, and he captured the imagination of the masses as this villainous, greedy Texas businessman.
In real life Hagman was well loved by those who knew him and he will be missed.
Legacy planning is something to take into consideration when you are looking ahead toward the future. To this end some people are in a position to create charitable foundations. Often times an individual will target the efforts of the foundation toward a particular goal that has some type of personal meaning to the founder.
The Larry Hagman Foundation was created by the actor to do something positive for financially disadvantaged children in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. This foundation is dedicated to providing creative arts education.
People have approached the Hagman family asking how they may be able to pass along a token of gratitude for all of the hours of entertainment that the actor was able to provide. If you would like to pay your respects the family asks that you make a donation to the Larry Hagman Foundation.
