program used for the 2006 ceremony
Mike Steckler (left), with Colin Watling, in the chapel, on November 15, 2006. Mr. Steckler was Tyrone Power's standin for many years, beginning with the movie, Rawhide. (Tyrone Power's longtime stand-in prior to Steckler was Tommy Noonan.) Steckler became very close friends with Ty and was with him on the set when he died. He was also with Ty when he took a short vacation on his yacht, The Black Swan, during the filming of Solomon and Sheba. He attends the memorial service each year.
This photo of Ty was taken by Mike Steckler. He brought
the photo to the memorial service, and this is a snapshot of that photo. This candid shot was taken of Ty at sea, which became such a source of relaxation for him in the months before he died.
Taryn Power (Ty's daughter); 10-year-old Stella (Ty's granddaughter), Colin Watling, and Terry Moore. Terry Moore was Ty's leading lady in King of the Khyber Rifles.
Rev. Gary Dickey, with bagpipes; Taryn Power (Ty's daughter); 10-year-old Stella (Ty's granddaughter)
The Rev. Dickey plays the bagpipes at Ty's gravesite. Bagpipe playing is a tribute to Tyrone Power's Irish ancestry, of which he always seemed quite proud. Notice the beautiful spray of flowers on the tombstone.
This pictures were taken on Monday, November 20th, when Colin met up again with Terry Moore.
Ty Would Have Loved This!
