EXPIRED: 02/08/10 – David Froman, 71, was a dark and ugly actor, in his own words, so he tended to get cast as a bad guy, but oh, what a sweetheart.

Froman played Lt. Bob Brooks in 56 
episodes of “Matlock,” the series starring Andy Griffith that aired from 1986 to 1994. Later he played Capt. K’Nera, a Klingon starship commander, in a 1988 episode 
of the TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

He also had roles in single episodes of “Hill Street Blues,” “Trapper 
John, M.D.,” “T.J. Hooker,” “21 Jump Street” and “Cheers.” All of those were in the 1980s.

But he made more of an impact closer to home. Froman was teaching drama in Miami at the time of his death and was active in the Miami Little Theatre, where his final role was as 
Capt. Keller in “The Miracle Worker” in November 2009.

People loved working with him, a big guy with a big booming voice, but an all around softie who would help anyone else, regardless of whether he was in the show or not. When he passed from cancer it was a great loss to the Miami acting community.
