Farewell, Tom Bosley

October 19, 2010 / Posted by:

Does the theme song to “Happy Days” work if you switch “happy” with “saddy“, because Mr. Cunningham is now reading his newspaper on an easy chair up in heaven.

Members of Tom Bosley’s family tell TMZ that he passed away at his home in Palm Springs at the age 83. Tom’s family said that he had been suffering from a nasty staph infection for a while, but his rep said that he died of natural causes “or specifically, from a brief battle with lung cancer.”

Tom Bosley has been in everything! Okay, almost everything. Not only did he play a sweater vest advocate on Happy Days, but he was also in Murder, She Wrote and was Father Dowling in Father Dowling Mysteries. Tom also blew out a few musical notes on stage in Fiorello!, Showboat, and Beauty & the Beast.

Rest in peace, Tom.

I’m not sure, but I think June Cleaver’s passing might be the first of three. And that means Mr. Cunningham’s is the second. I’m sensing a theme. QUICK Somebody throw themselves over Ann B. Davis!
