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.
