1928: Actor Dick York, best known for his role as the first Darrin Stephens on the sitcom "Bewitched," is born in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Stephens starred on "Bewitched" starting in 1964, but was forced to give up the role in 1969 because of a debilitating back injury he had suffered a decade earlier. He spent the rest of his life fighting not only back pain but also an addiction to prescription painkillers before dying from complications of emphysema at the age of 63 in 1992.
