Many sources on the 'Net, including Popeater.com, are reporting the death of Tom Bosley today from complications for a staph infection. He turned 83 at the beginning of this month. He won a Tony in 1959 for the lead role in Fiorello!, but is known to audiences for his ten year run as Howard Cunningham on Happy Days. A lot of sitcom stars never get another chance to play a different role with popular success, but Bosley also had a four year run in the Father Dowling Mystery series in the late 1980s and early 1990s. His most recent work was in The Back Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez, a movie released this year.
Best wishes to his family and friends, from a fan.
