    Yes, that’s him. I remember seeing him in tons of stuff when I was a kid, and I’ve seen all of his sons in their own shows as well. Sad news.

    Very sad, he was one funny guy. But like someone pointed out on the Bea Arthur article (I think it was Carol?), the worlds funniest are aging, and now we are starting to lose them.
