Ran into him in an elevator in Boston when he was filming the Spenser TV show. I would say 6.0 maybe 5'11" much slimmer than I thought he would be 170-180lbs.

I do not believe he was 6'2', but definitely not far off, looked a good 6'1" in his prime years.

In my opinion he looks about 6'1 to 6'1.5 max. I'd go 186 next to Avery Brooks.

I ran into Urich(nearly literally) on a Boston sidewalk in 1987 and was surprised at how not tall he was. Definitely not 6'-2".

6'2" is right for him. He looked this next to several 6'2" range actors in 1973's MAGNUM FORCE. I remember him most from his great run as the title character in SPENSER: FOR HIRE. He looked to have an inch on 6'1" Avery Brooks.

Urich seemed a legit 6'2" in "Swat" and "Vegas", but in "Spenser for Hire" he looked closer to 6'1.5" compared to guest actors. Near the end of his life, cut short by cancer, he looked 6'1".

I lived in Boston in the late 1980's. While walking down Beacon Street one day in 1987 I noticed a green late 60's Mustang Fastback parked up ahead. What first caught my attention was that the license plate was clearly made out of cardboard and I instantly realized that this was car used in the TV show "Spenser: For Hire". As I got closer Robert Urich and Avery Brooks got of the car and stepped up onto the sidewalk right in front of me. As I walked passed them I was very surprised at how small they both seemed. I'm 6'-3 1/2" and I would swear on a stack of Bibles that Urich looked only 6'-1" to me.

I always considered him as 6'3, never less; Are you sure of 6'2 what i must admit, i read everywhere; He probably 6'2 ion the 90ies; i buy it; But when younger, whether it is las vegas or shortly after, no; He was 6'3; i could bet anything on it !!

I'd say you've got him about right - - 6'2" to 6'2.5".

From website myhollywoodstar, "I first worked VEGA$ when it was filming in Las Vegas. I worked 6 episodes there. In one scene I stood in for Bob while his regular stand-in was away for some reason. Bob came back to the set and saw me in his position in the scene. He said, "Hey, you replaced me with a big guy." I am 6'4" tall. Bob was about 6'3".

Urich is the tv king - I think he was on at least 7 or 8 series. Usually he was the tallest around, and he was always listed at 6-3.
