Robert Edward "Bob" Crane (July 13, 1928 – June 29, 1978) was an American actor and disc jockey, best known for his performance as Colonel Robert E. Hogan in the television sitcom Hogan's Heroes from 1965 to 1971, and for his unsolved death.

Bob Crane was born in Waterbury, Connecticut, but he spent his childhood and teenage years in Stamford, Connecticut[1]. He graduated from Stamford High School (Stamford, Connecticut) in 1946[2]. Music was always very important to Bob, and he started playing drums very early in life. By junior high, he was organizing local drum and bugle parades with his neighborhood friends in Stamford[3]. Later, he became very involved in his high school marching and jazz bands, as well as in the school’s orchestra[4]. He also played for the Connecticut Symphony and the Norwalk Symphony Orchestras as part of the youth orchestra program[5]. On June 21, 1948, Bob enlisted in the National Guard and was honorably discharged on May 1, 1950[6]. In 1949, he married high school sweetheart Anne Terzian, and they raised three children - Robert David, Deborah Ann, and Karen Leslie[7]. Bob and Anne were later divorced, and he married Patricia Olsen, an actress whose stage name was Sigrid Valdis. They had one son, Robert Scott Crane, and adopted a daughter, Ana Marie.
