Marlboro third men Eric Lawson, dies of Lung Cancer


Lawson died at his San Luis Obispo, Calif., home on Jan. 10 from respiratory failure caused by chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife, Susan Lawson, told the Associated Press on Sunday.

He is at least the third former Marlboro Man actor to die of a smoking-related illness, according to the AP. David Millar died of emphysema in 1987, and David McLean died of lung cancer in 1995.

Lawson also played small roles in a host of TV shows including Charlie's Angels, The A-Team and Baywatch for more than three decades, according to the Internet Movie Database.
