Last photo I saw of him made him look like he was not a day younger than 85.

Yeah he's looked rough the past few years, but damn! Little Buddy and Skipper are sailing an unsinkable SS Minnow now.

Really like Maynard G. Krebs too. He was the Fonz before being Fonz was cool.

From his bio in IMDB.COM

In contrast to more egotistical TV stars -- especially William Shatner on "Star Trek" (1966) -- Denver often went out of his way to help his fellow castmembers on "Gilligan's Island" (1964). This is included trying to give Dawn Wells an equal share of publicity as Tina Louise and demanding that she and Russell Johnson be given an equal credit in the show's title sequence.

May 2005 - recuperating in his West Virginia home after quadruple heart bypass surgery.

I'm glad he finally got off the island.

That is correct, it was mentioned only a few times.
