Roger Sexton, a contestant on CBS’s “Survivorsixth,” has passed away. He was 76.
On October 27, Sexton succumbed to Lewy Body Dementia. Deadline received a confirmation from his family on Thursday.
Sexton took part in “Survivor: The Amazon” in 2002. Veteran of the Vietnam War and retired Marine Sexton’s strong and domineering demeanor alienated some of his rival candidates but also aided his tribe’s early success.
Sexton was the ninth player to be eliminated from the game after 21 days after taking over as the de facto leader of his Tambaqui tribe and was ultimately voted out when the tribes united.
We are devastated to learn of the passing of a member of our “Survivor” family, Roger Sexton, according to a message on the “Survivorofficial” Instagram account. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.
In addition to his daughter and two granddaughters, Sexton also leaves behind Diane, his wife of more than 50 years.
