    He was 50 – all the news reports are getting his age wrong. So much for fact checking…

    and just so we’re sure on this topic
    HE WAS 50!!!!
    born in 1958 according to IMDB.

    Also according to IMDB: Mark Landon was the son of Dodie Frasier. He was adopted by Michael Landon when he married Dodie in 1956.
    So he could very well have been 60 at the time of his death.

    It’s NEWS when a celeb dies. It’s not news when a middle-aged “child” of dead celeb dies. Slow news day?

    He was adopted in 1958….that was not when he was born

  • Shawnac

    Mark Fraser Landon, born October 1, 1948 (Dodie’s biological son), …adopted 1958 by Landon

  • Anela

    HE WAS BORN IN 1948! Adopted in 58!! Do the math!

  • Wayne Daniel

    I was a class mate of Mark at Brown Military Academy in Glendora Calif.. I am 60, therefore this confirms his age of 60. I enjoyed his friendship.

    I cannot understand how people cannot figure out that Mark had to have been adopted if Michael was only 12 years old. He was 42 when his father died, almost 18 years ago, so he is definitely 60.
    I know that Mark and Michael are together in heaven. My condolences to the Landon family.

    to Angela– on the website imbd- it does say ” adopted, born October 1958″– so it looks as if math is not OUR issue here- I know I can add just fine!! The website is probably wrong on their date!
