Dan Haggerty, the famous ’70s actor who played Grizzly Adams in “The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams,” died Friday morning of cancer, according to multiple media reports. He was 74.

TMZ is reporting that doctors discovered the cancer after Haggerty had surgery for back pain.

“Grizzly Adams” was about a mountain man who was best friends with a grizzly bear after he is wrongly accused of murder. The character was based on a real-life Californian trapper from the 1980s.

His daughter, Megan, had a crowdfunding site until Dec. 22, 2015 to “help Dan Haggerty fight his battle with cancer.” Only $10,625 were raised as opposed to its target of $100,000.
