At his bedside were his wife of 17 years, Therese, 58; daughters Stephanie, 20, and Lorraine, 30, and Mrs. Alan Ladd, with whose ate actor husband Bendix once starred. During his career, Bendix Jlayed characters ranging from >ruta) villains to everybody's pal. To millions of fans of "The ife of Riley" television show, 3endix' death was a double loss. !t removed Chester Riley, the carried father. Bendix' wife once admitted to an interviewer: "Chester Riley and Bill Bendix are alike in a lot of ways. "Bill's bluff manner doesn't let outsiders know what he is like at all. He has all the kindness and desire to help others that Riley is noted for. Sometimes, when I watch a Riley show, I say to myself, 'You'd think the writers lived with us.' • Like Riley, Bendix was a bit of a failure in the beginning. Born in New York City Jan. 14, 1906, he flopped as a bat boy for the New York Giants — his mother wouldn't let him go out for spring training. He didn't do much better as a semi-pro baseball player, singing waiter and grocer. His debut on the boards at 16, Bendix knew his --- _ nose and beer keg physique would never qualify him as a 1 matinee idol. "I'm about as handsome as aj mud fence," he once remarked. But the strength and sincerity underneath the craggy exterior transformed him from character actor to star. He was frightening in Eugene O'Neill's "The Hairy Ape," tough as the brutal first mate in "Two Years Before the Mast." Bendix underwent surgery for stomach ulcers in 1955. Bendix and his wife had been living in Palm Desert until he was brought to Good Samaritan Hospital Dec. 8. Funeral services are tentatively scheduled for Thursday in suburban Van Nuys.
