LOS ANGELES (AP) –  A Disney star of the 1960s, Dean Jones, has
died of Parkinson’s Disease.

Jones boyish good looks and all-American manner made him Disney’s
favorite young actor for such lighthearted films as "That Darn Cat!" in
1965 and "The Love Bug” in 1968.

Jones’ long association with The Walt Disney Co. began after he received
an unexpected call from Walt Disney himself, who praised his work on the
NBC-TV show "Ensign O’Toole," commenting it had "some good closing
sequences."

NOTE: Dean Jones became a devout born-again Christian in 1973–1974
and In 1998 Jones founded the Christian Rescue Committee (CRC), an
organization that helps provide a "way of escape to Jews, Christians, and
others persecuted for their faith.
