Russell Johnson, who played Professor Roy Hinkley on Gilligan’s Island, has passed away at age 89.

The actor died of kidney failure Thursday at his home in Washington, surrounded by his wife Constance Dane and daughter Kim Johnson.

“He died at home, peaceful, in his sleep at 5:21 a.m. today,” Dane said.. “[He was] a very brave guy who knew what he wanted, and he wanted to be at home.”

His death came quickly as he had been in good health, says his agent Michael Eisentstadt.

When did he get off the island?
