    American actor and now nonagenarian senior citizen Mike Connors was born August 15, 1925 in Fresno, California. His nickname of “Touch” began in high school where he played basketball…an easier name to pronounce than his birth name of Krekor Ohanian, given to him by his Armenian parents. “Touch” served in the US Army Air Forces during World War II, and when the war ended he attended UCLA on the G. I. Bill of Rights and a basketball scholarship.
