RIP Tom Bosley, dead at 83

Tom Bosley, who rose to fame playing the role of Mr. Cunningham on Happy Days, has passed away today. He was said to be battling a staph infection and passed away in his home in Palm Springs, California.

He was 83-years-old.

So sad. I loved him on that show. He will be missed. RIP Tom Bosley (October 1, 1927- October 19, 2010).

Update: His former co-stars, Henry Winkler and Scott Baio have given their kind words about the acting legend.

Henry said, “I saw him before I ever got to Hollywood on Broadway, and he was great. And then I got to act with him for 10 years and he was great. Tom Bosley was our mentor. He was a true artist … a great husband, and a fabulous father and grandfather. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.”

Scott Baio added, “He was a good man who taught me a lot about the business and business itself. He was a professional guy … I’m sad.”

May he rest in peace.
