I really hate to see that. I saw him not long ago on Seinfeld's Comedian in Cars Getting Coffee. Much too young.

It does make you think about the OMY knowing that you may not even make it... He was only 66.

Yes in the days before PVRs, we sued to watch it whenever we found it playing. Great show. I wondered why he did not take more work after that.
