PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE D WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24. 1999 B-5- OBITUARIES JOHN DECONCILIIS DAVID STRICKLAND Sitcom actor apparent suicide By Robert Macy The Assoculed Pfoss LAS VEGAS - David Strickland, the "Suddenly Susan" actor who apparently committed suicide by hanging himself in a motel room, was due in court in a drug case- on the day he was found dead, records show. i Police shed no new light yesterday on Mc Strickland's death,, which was discovered Monday morning. But records reviewed in Los Angeles snowed that he was supposed to have appeared in court there on that day. : Air. Strickland was arrested Oct 31 for cocaine possession and pleaded no contest on Dec. 21, records show. He was put on probation for three years and ordered into a rehabilitation program. He was due in court for a progress report on that program. Angela Cheung, an attorney who was representing Mr. Strickland, declined comment I)lice said there nothing to indicate foul play. No note was found, there was no indication of drugs, and Strickland did not place any long-distance calls from his room, Lt Wayne Petersen said. "We found nothing to indicate any- 1 .-'1f4 Late 1990s photo David Strickland thing but a suicide," he said Mr. Strickland, 29, played the role of Todd, a music critic in NBC's "Suddenly Susan," and was in "Forces of Nature, the No. 1 box office movie last weekend. Warner Bros, and NBC said production of "Suddenly Susan" was being halted indefinitely. "I am devastated by the loss of my best friend whose talent and humor f-aced all who knew him," series star rooke Shields said in a statement Strickland was born in Glen Cove, N.Y., and moved to Pacific Palisades near Los Angeles while he was in high school. After graduation, he pursued an acting career. He guest-starred in episodes of "Roseanne" and "Dave's World." He also had recurring roles on "Sister, Sister" and "Mad About You," playing Paul Reiser's co-worker. He also had a role in the 1998 independent film "Delivered." First name in beauty throughout the region 7 11?, ByBobBatzJr. Post-Gazette Stall Writer Say "Johnny De" in beauty circles, and many, many hairdressers, stylists and others know that you mean a little guy with a big personality and a big cigar. That man was John DeConciliis, but "Johnny De" is what everybody called him. And Johnny De Beauty Supply is what he named his business, which was based in Monessen but did its share to make people beautiful throughout Western Pennsylvania and beyond. Mr. DeConciliis, 84, of Brookline, died Sunday of a heart attack. But he's a figure who'll long be remembered as larger-than-life. "He was just really dynamic," said his daughter, Corinne Runyon of Monessen. She and her husband, Bill, started the beauty wholesaler with him when he was 61 and already had worked in the business for more than 40 years. "My dad was out on the road selling when he was 17," she recalled. The New York City-born son of Italian immigrants, he worked for his father's and uncles' Downtown Pittsburgh business Bruno Bros.,which made wigs and toupees from hair imported from Italy. Eventually, he became sales manager at its Charleroi store. His beauty supplies and his influence spread across the region. His daughter described as ''flamboyant" the trips he'd arrange, on some of the first char tered flights from here ever, to the International Beauty Show in New York in the 1940s and '50s. In the '60s, he was on the cutting edge by hosting a visit by the famous Vidal Sassoon and got to know all the bigwigs at Clairol and Revlon. In the '70s, after launching his own business, he also started an annual professional seminar at Seven Springs resort that continues, without its "Johnny De" name. "He was an innovator and a pioneer," recalled his next-door-neighbor, best buddy and younger brother, Arthur B. DeConciliis, who is the president of the Pittsburgh Beauty Academy. As big a part as the beauty business played in John DeConciliis' life, he had other interests: He was a huge sports fan particularly of the Steelers (he was a season ticket holder) and the Duquesne Dukes (he attended basketball games but not college there, only its preparatory school). In World War II, he was drafted by the Marines but had a bad knee from falling off a horse and was honorably discharged within months, his brother recalled. "In fact I used to kid him a lot: Tou were home before we got home from the train station.' " Mr. DeConciliis, with his taste for Beefeater gin on the rocks, became a regular with his wife, Winifred, at Louis Tambellini's restaurant. It was automatic that they'll hold his wake there, said Runyon. She, with her husband, runs Johnny De Salon Furniture, the part of their business that wasn't sold off about four years ago, when her father retired. Still, she said, "You never saw my Dan that , he didn't ask about business" even Friday,. .' when she visited him in the hospital. Others ,f" never saw him dressed in anything but a'suit ' and tie. ' V;4 , "He was one of the old handshake giiVsV'. said Lou Eichert, who runs Louis A Hair Care , in Mount Washington and who knew Mr.'De-" Conciliis for four decades. As always, when Eichert started this salon 15 years ago, "John-' ny De" sold him all the equipment but without ' any paperwork. His way was to say, in his New '' York accent "Just tell 'em what you need, Lou,' and we'll bring it up." i ' l! One of the most famous local names in the-styling industry, Arnold Zegarelli, called the DeConciliis brothers "two parts of tiie same pair of scissors. ... There are people all oyer!: this city who owe their careers to these two ; men" -including himself. ' ::: "Up in Charleroi and in Monessen, he's like a legend," Zegarelli said of "Johnny De." "He's , . one of those very special, unselfish business-; , men. Everyone he touched, they grew." , - ,'!, In addition to his wife, daughter and broth-' er, Mr. DeConciliis is survived by daughter, Sally Walker of Upper St Clair, three grand-:' sons and two great-grandsons.
