A web-search for an obituary turned up nothing. Sam Wagstaff also did not say anything on his website.
There is a tribute here: https://homes.cerias.purdue.edu/~ssw...50/cunn141.pdf

Found it through the Fermat search page.

I obviously wasn't paying attention to SSW when I received that one.
Do you get Sam's newsletter?

I filed it without reading it. Clearly I should pay more attention.

Robert Clary

The obituaries are in consensus that he was best-known for his role as LeBeau in Hogan's Heroes. But there is more to the story...
Quote:
Clary was 16 in September 1942 when he was deported from Paris to Nazi concentration camps with 12 other members of his Jewish family. He was the only one who survived. Clary spent 2-1/2 years in the Ottmuth, Blachhammer, Gross-Rosen and Buchenwald concentration camps, enduring hunger, disease and forced labor.
<snip>
In the camps set up by the Nazis to eradicate Europe's Jews, he was tattooed with the number A-5714 and forced to dig trenches, work in a shoe factory and sing for his captors. The singing earned him a few extra morsels of food, Clary said.

"I was one of the lucky ones," he told the Asbury Park, New Jersey, Press in 2002. "First of all, because I survived. Secondly, because I was in camps that were not as atrocious as others. I did not suffer. I did not work as hard as people were working in salt mines on quarries. I was never tortured. I was never really beaten. I was never hanged. But I saw all these things."
<snip>
Alarm over people trying to deny the Holocaust prompted Clary in 1980 to end his self-imposed silence about his experiences. He spent years traveling to schools in the United States and Canada speaking about the Holocaust. He also wrote an autobiography, "From the Holocaust to Hogan's Heroes."

"We must learn from history," Clary told the Reno Gazette-Journal in 2002, "which we don't."

True!
Rest in peace Mr. Clary, sir!
