He didn't have the best roles on Trek, but he did the best he could with them!

George Vincent "Skip" Homeier began his career as a child actor in 1941 at age 11 on the radio. His first film role came at age 14 in the movie 'Tomorrow, the World!' in which he played an orphan who was in the Hitler Youth and sent to America to live with his uncle. Although he never attained the film status of a leading man, he was one of the successful and lucky few who transitioned from childhood to adult roles on screen and on television, including his memorable characters seen on the original 'Star Trek'.
After a 41-year career, Mr. Homeier retired in 1982 and pretty much "vanished" from the public eye, although his autograph could be seen in recent years on numbers of collectible 'Star Trek' photo cards sold over the Internet, so he did make attempts to keep in touch with his fans. He is survived by his wife of nearly 54 years, Della, and their adult son, Michael.
Godspeed, Mr. Homeier, and thank you very much.
