Still had me in stitches only weeks ago on Kimmel's show. Funny and reliable. Must watch Spinal Tap again...

Godspeed, funny man.

So many great funny roles...

I liked his last role as a goofy neighbor in "The Magic Of Belle Isle".

Good contributions to comedy over a great career.

"My father passed away very peacefully last night at the fantastic age of 86 years old. He kept moving, working and making us happy until the very end."

His daughter says "natural causes."

Ah, when it rains... indeed we just said goodbye to Little Richard and Jerry Stiller, and now another fine actor. All of them lived long lives and great careers, and made us better. We are all the worse for their loss, but they have left us with the laughs. RIP.
