“`Larry Storch was a comedic actor, best remembered for his role as Corporal Agarn on F-Troop. He was also a celebrated voice actor. He was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in 1967, but lost to childhood friend Don Adams that year. He even auditioned to play James Bond early in his career.

“`His high school classmate was Adams;  and he was the shipmate of Tony Curtis on the submarine tender USS Proteus. Early on, he would warm up an audience with comedic impressions for a local bandleader.

“`Storch was busy on television, guest-starring in Car 54 Where Are YouSergeant Bilko, MannixGet SmartColumboCHiPsFantasy IslandMcCloudThe Flying Nun, Alias Smith and JonesI Dream of Jeannie, Gomer Pyle  U.
