We are saddened by the pasing of actor Bruce Hyde. Hyde was best known to fans as Lieutenant Kevin Riley in The Original Series episodes "The Conscience of the King" and "The Naked Time." In addition to acting on TV and the stage, he was professor emeritus of communication studies at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, teaching both acting and communications. In 1987 he was a guest at Shore Leave 9.
Bruce Hyde passed away on October 13, 2015. He is survived by his wife Dr. Susan M. Saetre.
