Did you know that..... Chuck was older then  John Anderson? 

Chuck was born April 10, 1921     John was born  October 20, 1922 in Clayton, Illinois

Chuck died November 10, 1992  —  John died August 7, 1992 in Sherman Oaks,
California of a heart attack

Even though Chuck was older then John, John played Chuck's father-in-law in "Old Man Running" aka "The Wanted Man" (episode—#166).  That makes him Johnny Gibbs "Pa!"  (The Brother-in-law—episode #5)
Still, having a father-in-law just a few months younger is an interesting concept! A credit to Anderson's ability to morph into a character. He's listed as 6' 51/2" too.

Thanks Kurt Burgess for the info!
