Sad to say, just off the phone with his wife... Russell Johnson, The Professor from "Gilligan's Island," has died of Kidney Failure.

Johnson is best remembered for his role as The Professor on Gilligan's Island.

Earlier today, TV Land announced that Gilligan's Island would return to their lineup beginning with a marathon on Monday.

Russell was a true gentleman, a good father, a great friend, and "the rest".
I love him and shall miss him. My heart goes out to Connie and his daughter Kim. I love you.
