LOS ANGELES, CA — Dale Robertson, whose horse expertise, Oklahoma roots and handsome looks helped him win cowboy roles in 1950s and ’60s, has died at the age of 89, his wife said Thursday.

Robertson was diagnosed with stage four cancer just last week while being treated for pneumonia at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California, Susan Robertson said. He died Tuesday.

“He always said he lived two or three lifetimes,” she said. “He was in Hollywood when it was great.”
