Pat Shields, 70, producer-director for more than 30 years, was found dead in his car Aug. 16 in Death Valley, apparently the victim of heat exhaustion.
Shields began as a film editor at Telepix, becoming a commercial producer at Carson/Roberts Advertising and its successor, Ogilvy & Mather.
He also directed several network programs, including “Villa Allegre” and “Curiosity Shop.”
Survived by his wife, Elinor, and a brother, Ellis. Memorial services will be held Aug. 30 at 11 a.m. at Crippen Mortuary in La Crescenta.
