On May 19th, 2023, actor Rick Dalton passed away peacefully in his home in Honolulu, Hawaii. He is survived by his wife Francesca. Dalton was beloved by fans of Bounty Law, where he played bounty hunter Jake Cahill for five seasons, and also for his iconic role as a flamethrower-wielding vigilante in The Fireman series. But he was so much more than that, with a career that spanned over twenty years.
