The actor that will forever be known as Mr. Cunningham, Tom Bosley, passed away today at the age of 83. Just a few days after one of America’s greatest TV moms passed away (the legendary Barbara Billingsley at 94), today we lost one of our favorite TV dads.
Bosley is most remembered for his role as Mr. C, but his career extended long past Happy Days as he played Sheriff Amos Tupper on Murder, She Wrote for a few seasons before getting his own show, Father Dowling Mysteries on ABC from 1987-1991. Bosley later made a memorable guest appearance on a retro episode of Boy Meets World and some current appearances on Family Guy.
His final role was in the film The Back-Up Plan that was released earlier this year. RIP Mr. Bosley.
