Russell Johnson, Gilligan’s Island, Pass at 89.

It seems that yet another star has passed.

Russell Johnson, best known for playing the brainy Professor on Giligan's Island, has passed. The late actor was 89 and was the last surviving male star from the 1960's classic sitcom—which famously listed all of its characters in the more well-known version of its iconic opening theme song.

Sources of our friends at E! Stated that the star died of natural causes Thursday at 5:21 a.m. at his home with wife Constance and daughter Kim by his side.

"He was a gentleman, very kind," Johnson's agent, Mike Eisenstadt, tells E! "He was very smart and very respectful. He was a nice, normal guy."

The Pennsylvania-born actor worked regularly in TV and films for more than 40 years. Johnson appeared on the likes of The Twilight Zone, Lassie, The Lone Ranger and The Jeffersons. He was also on the big screen in the cult sci-fi classic It Came From Outer Space and in a number of Westerns, including The Stand at Apache River and Tumbleweed.

Married three times, Johnson is survived by his wife, actress Constance Dane, stepson Courtney Dane and daughter Kim from his second marriage. His son, David, died of AIDS in 1994, prompting Johnson's activism as a fund-raiser for AIDS research.
