'Hawaii Five-O' Co-Star Kam Fong Dead at 84

HONOLULU, Hawaii (Reuters) - Kam Fong Chun, the man TV viewers around the world knew as Detective Chin Ho Kelly in the hit crime series "Hawaii Five-O," died in Honolulu after a long fight against cancer, his family said on Wednesday. He was 84.

Chun, who died on Oct. 18, suffered from inoperable lung cancer, said his elder son, Dennis Chun. Family members did not announce the actor's death until Wednesday because they said they wanted some private time after having shared him with the public for so many years.

Working under the stage name Kam Fong, the Honolulu native appeared on "Hawaii Five-O" from its debut in 1968 to 1978, two years before the series was canceled. He was the trusted, tough detective working alongside the show's main character, Steve McGarrett, who was played by Jack Lord. Lord died in January 1998.
