Profile Bio Text
Blocker was born Bobby Don Blocker in De Kalb in East Texas, the son of Mary (née Davis) and Ora Shack Blocker. His family moved to O`Donnell, located in both Lynn and Dawson counties near Lubbock in west Texas, soon after his birth. He played football at Hardin-Simmons University in 1946. He attended Texas Military Institute and later graduated from Sul Ross State Teacher`s College in Alpine, where he earned a master`s degree in the dramatic arts. (Although the "Hoss" character on Bonanza was conceived initially as lovable but slow-witted, Blocker was the only cast member with an advanced degree.) Blocker was a high school English and drama teacher in Sonora, Texas, Carlsbad, New Mexico and California. He reportedly worked as a rodeo performer and as a bouncer in a beer joint while a student. By all accounts he is remembered from his school days for his size of 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) and weight of 300 pounds (136 kg), and as being good-natured despite his intimidating size. On May 13, 1972, Blocker died suddenly of a pulmonary embolism following routine gall bladder surgery in Los Angeles (essentially, a post-op blood-clot to the lungs). The cast and crew of Bonanza were shaken by his death, and the writers took the then-unusual step of referencing a major character`s death in the show`s storyline that autumn. Bonanza lasted another season, but the final season in which Blocker did not appear is the least-requested in reruns.
