Tom Bosley, Happy Days Dad, Dead at 83

Happy Days

Farewell, Mr. C.

Tom Bosley, who as 1950s Happy Days dad Howard Cunningham was the leading TV dad of the 1970s, has died at his Palm Springs area home, his agent confirmed to E! News. He was 83.

On Happy Days, Bosley ran a hardware store, and the Cunningham clan—although he was usually more in charge at the store. His TV charges included Ron Howard, as son Richie, Erin Moran, as daughter Joanie, and Henry Winkler, as Fonzie, the ratings draw who moved into the house.

"We were a make-believe family for 10 years, and like a real family for over 30. He will be so, so missed," Winkler tells E! News.

"Mr. Tom Bosley will be missed by many. He was a great actor, teacher and man," Scott Baio, who played Chachi, yet another regular at the Cunninghams, tweeted today.

According to Palm Spring's Desert Sun, Bosley, who worked long after Happy Days ended in 1984, was set to host a local stage show this coming February.

The passing of Bosley comes just days after that of another legendary TV parent, Barbara Billingsley, who played the mom on Leave It to Beaver.
