SAGWatch is reporting that actor Conard Fowkes has passed away.
We’re hearing that Conard Fowkes, longtime former board member of SAG, AFTRA and Equity, has passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Fowkes, who got his start in soaps back in the days when they were on the radio, was 76.
Among his many achievements as a union activist was the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, VITA, which he co-founded in 2006.
Fowkes played Frank Garner on DARK SHADOWS, Paul Britton on THE SECRET STORM, Allen Ramsey on SEARCH FOR TOMORROW, Steve Prentiss on THE EDGE OF NIGHT, Don Hughes on AS THE WORLD TURNS and Arthur Adams on HIDDEN FACES. He also appeared on LOVE OF LIFE early in his career.
