Son of the skipper kills himself over Scientology KR on Scientology When I was young we had a friend of the family Dorian Hale (A.K.A. the son of Alan Hale "The Skipper" from the famous TV series "Gilligan's Island") He used to come over and make all the kids laugh with his stand up comedy. He would preform at the improv in Hollywood every now and again. I often heard my Mother mention how she thought he had an alcohol addiction and that she wanted to help him with Scientology. I wasn't bothered by his addiction because he was always cheerful and fun. Finally my parents disseminated to him and got him to do a Scientology course at CC (I believe he attended an acting workshop there first). After doing that one course he was quite excited to go up the bridge and "fix" his life. Later he came to my mother quite upset saying that he really messed up this lifetime, and will have to do Scientology next lifetime because the Org wouldn't let him receive auditing due to his past connection with psych drugs. Shortly there after he committed suicide. I know in Scientology they say that psych drugs and alcohol are really bad for you, but they cannot be worse for you than being dead. Dorian, you will always remain a happy memory, and your playfulness and humor has inspired me to become the person I am today. You have been missed.
