He also was heavily involved in civil rights and his years of commitment to the NRA, an organization which I fully support, were outstanding. Not only was he a great actor, he was a faithful and loving husband and father, married to Lydia for 64 years, a rarity in Hollywood. RIP, Mr. Heston - you will be sorely missed.
Couldn't have said it better myself - I remember watching The Ten Commandments every year around Easter, and I always had a big crush on him. He was one helluva man.
