Sargent died in 1994, having lived out his last few years openly and contentedly.

Trivia: Dick appeared on the game show "Tattletales" (1974) with Fannie Flagg in the 1970s. His father, Elmer Cox, was a World War I hero and a Hollywood business manager. Sargent's companion from 1989-1994 was writer/producer Albert Williams.

He was born Richard Cox on April 19, 1930 in Carmel, California.

His mother, Ruth Mc Naughton, was a minor actress who went by the stage name of "Ruth Powell"; his father, Colonel Elmer Cox, served in WWI and later became a business manager to such Hollywood alumni as Douglas Fairbanks and Erich von Stroheim.

In 1989, "the second Darrin" was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

He later revealed to the world he was homosexual after tabloid papers began to refer to his serious illness as AIDS-related.

He also played a role in another witch-themed story line called Teen Witch (1989).

He just seems like a typical very anal retentive white male.

As a result, he never advanced into the upper echelon of star players. In 1969, Dick, who actually had been the original choice to play "Darrin Stephens" on the hit show "Bewitched" (1964), was given a second chance to play the bemused mortal husband of Elizabeth Montgomery.

A big chance for stardom dissipated after being paired promisingly with Tammy Grimes on her TV show in 1966. A chronic back pain finally necessitated the replacing of ailing Dick York.

His role on "Bewitched" (1964) was first offered to him in 1964, but he was under a contract with Universal Studios, so Dick York was hired instead.

By the time an illness caused York to discontinue the role, Sargent was free enough to take over.
