From his daughter:
"Hi everyone! This is Tom's daughter, Sam. Our family wanted to share why my dad has been MIA. About two months ago he had a left side stroke that gave him right sided weakness and damage to the speech center of his brain. This means right now he cannot efficiently communicate verbally, nor read or spell. He is still competent and very much himself, but can only get out a few words right now. As many of you might know about strokes, it is possible for him to gain these functions back and we have found him excellent care in Kanas City for speech, occupation, and physical therapy, but for now, we have been warned by his Neurologist that he may not do voiceovers again.
My dad still remains in good spirits and his extreme stubbornness has helped him already show improvements in speech. He is fully on board with me sharing this and will see anything you guys post.
Lots of love from our family to yours."
And you can see the pictures she put on social media here
Tom Kane voiced Dante in the spinoff series Team Knight Rider
. (Which, I admit I haven't seen very much of. But, I've always had a soft spot for Dante, since his personality seemed the closest to Kitt's.) And as mentioned, he's done a lot of voiceover work--as anyone who was a kid (especially in the 90's) will tell you.
I also remember a story of his reaching out to a young lady who was being teased by her peers because she was a girl who was into Star Wars
We send out our prayers and well wishes to Mr. Kane and his family for a speedy and successful recovery . <3
