Hatch, Richard

Not many would have expected the shy, introverted, prospective pole vaulting championship to become one of the earliest recognizable faces in televised Science Fiction, which Richard Hatch would do as Captain Apollo in Battlestar Galactica.

Hatch decided to pursue acting after finding a passion for performance in his required Oral Interpretation class in college. He would go on to have rolls on All My Children, Hawaii Five-O, The Streets of San Francisco, and eventually role in Battlestar Galactica’s original 1 year run in 1978, and a guest star in the more popular follow up to the original show.

Hatch passed away from pancreatic cancer on February 7th, 2017 in hospice care in L.A..

My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!
