    He was known for his kindness and accessibility to his fans.
    He credited his high school drama teacher with his success, and would call her once a week to thank her.
    He let the neighborhood kids swim in his pool.
    In 1986, he was awarded the Outstanding Indian/Native American of the Year Award by a Native American group.
    On the set, he refused to eat until the extras and crew members had been served.
