By Melissa Roberto
Comic actor Fred Willard has died at the age of 86.

The beloved star with several acting credits — including “Best in Show,” “This is Spinal Tap” and “Everybody Loves Raymond” — died of natural causes, his daughter confirmed to Fox News.

“My father passed away very peacefully last night at the fantastic age of 86 years old. He kept moving, working and making us happy until the very end. We loved him so very much!” his daughter Hope Mulbarger told Fox News in a statement on Saturday. “We will miss him forever.”

Fair winds and following seas, Mr. Willard. Read the entire article here: Fox News

    Rest in Peace Good Sir, We Thank You for the laughs and we Thank You for your Service to our Country.

    Had forgotten about KMI; they had a number of distinguished and accomplished alumni from their beginnings in 1845. Among other actors and Military Men was former Gov John Y. Brown whose ex wife Phyllis George passed away Thursday. I met Mr. Brown prior to him becoming the guv when he bought control of KFC. RIP to Ms George also. She was still a looker at age 70. Thanks for the linky to KMI Bro.
