by J-Mirabelli

The series is available on DVD and Touched by an Angel: The Album, includes a full-length version of the series' theme song, "Walk With You", performed by Della Reese.

Touched by an Angel is a TV drama series that ran for 211 episodes and nine seasons until its conclusion on April 27, 2003. From the third season on, actor John Dye became a regular on the series as Andrew, the “Angel of Death”. The character he portrayed was not your typical view of the Death Angel. He was a compassionate, unintimidating Angel who guided you from this world to the next.

On January 10, 2011, John Dye met with the real Angel of Death when he passed away suddenly from a heart attack at his home in San Francisco. He was 47. John was not married and is survived by his brothers Jerre and Jamey, his father, James, and his grandmother, Irene Duvall.

Close friend and star of the TV series, Della Reese said that she, Roma Downey and John were very much a “family unit during the Touched By an Angel Series.

“He was my Angel Boy, that’s what I called him.” Despite the loss, Reese believes Dye is in “a place where whatever was not right for him is now right for him.”
