    Gregory Sierra was most memorable to me as Julio Fuentes, the neighbor of Sanford & Son, then as sergeant Chano Amanguale on Barney Miller, among 129 TV roles.

    DS9-Second Skin as Entek? I think I missed that one.

    Rest in peace Mr. Sierra.
    Among other things he was also the first boss on Miami Vice.

    I didn't watch Barney Miller growing up, so I first saw him as Entek and I always loved him in that role. I also loved him in Soap!

    Rest in peace, Gregory. :(

    I love Garak's line after he killed Entek.

    "Pity...I rather liked him."

    Barney Miller is one of those shows that deserves to be watched - no matter what your age...

    I just finished watching the first three seasons of Airwolf on Blu-Ray and he had a small role in an episode during the back-half of season 3. Funnily enough, according to IMDb he was also in an episode of Blue Thunder. R.I.P.
