His ‘Santa Barbara’ co-star A Martinez announced his death in a message posted on his Facebook page. “Dane passed this morning. People who watched Santa
Barbara in its earliest days will remember him as Joe Perkins, a character to which he brought a quiet grace and deep, bittersweet sense of soul,” Martinez wrote.
