Bruce Hyde, an actor and former St. Cloud State University professor, died Tuesday after a battle with throat cancer, according to information released by St. Cloud State. He was 74.
Although his acting career included turns on Broadway and TV shows such as “That Girl,” Hyde will forever be remembered and beloved by Trekkies for his role in the original “Star Trek” series.
He spent his last days at Quiet Oaks Hospice House, holding court and teasingly correcting the staffers’ grammar using his white board because he couldn’t talk, said his wife of 20 years, Susan Saetre. She said Hyde’s last year was awesome and included a retirement party he jokingly called “a living wake,” as well as time with loved ones.
He made a hell of an impact in just two guest shots. Lt. Kevin Riley was among the best of the appears-more-than-once Enterprise crew, and with one very funny episode and one very dramatic episode, he was one of the best actors in that category too.
