The actor memorial list in the summer edition of the SAG-AFTRA Magazine brought to my attention two more "Days of Our Lives" passings. Arthur Malet, who appeared in six episodes as Nigel Peabody (a homeless man that Jack Deveraux met while in New York City) in 1990, passed away on May 18, 2013 at the age of 85...Robert Lee Jarvis, who played a diver searching for David Banning's body (David had driven off a bridge and was presumed dead) for seven episodes in 1975 passed away on April 24, 2013 at the age of 81.

Malet came to some prominence in 1960s films, often playing characters much older than his real age, such as Mr. Dawes, Jr., in Disney's “Mary Poppins”. He played undertaker Ted Ulam in Norman Jewison's 1967 film “In the Heat of the Night”, and as Joe Fenwick in a 1972 episode of Columbo, ‘Dagger of the Mind’. He went on to play a village elder in Mel Brooks' “Young Frankenstein” in 1974, the graveyard keeper in John Carpenter's “Halloween” in 1978, and Tootles in “Hook” in 1991. His appearances on television include episodes of ‘The Donna Reed Show’, ‘The Monster Squad’, ‘Adventures in Paradise’, ‘The Alfred Hitchcock Hour’ and ‘Bewitched’. He voiced the character of Mr. Ages in “The Secret of NIMH’ in 1982.
