Soap Opera Vet Clint Richie Dies at 70

(Feb. 2) - Soap opera veteran Clint Ritchie, who for two decades starred as a plain-spoken ranch owner on 'One Life to Live,' died on Saturday just hours after getting a pacemaker implanted, a friend of that actor told Radar Online. He was 70.

The star's pal and bookkeeper, Linda Honore, said Ritchie "had been sick for awhile." He suffered a heart attack in late January, and had the pacemaker installed.

Ritchie played Clint Buchanan on the long-running ABC soap. He joined the cast in 1979 and last made an appearance in 2004. The role was recast.

The actor never married and has no children. He lived on a 60-acre ranch near Sacramento.
