Tom Bosley the folksy father of Richie Cunningham on the ‘70s sitcom about the ‘50s, ABC’s Happy Days, died Tuesday in his Palm Springs, Calif., home. On Oct. 1 he had turned 83.

The actor died of a staph infection, according to TMZ, which first reported his death.

Before finding fame on the small screene, Bosley won a Tony for starring as the beloved New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia in the Pulitzer-Prize-winning 1959 musical Fiorello!. He also made a memorable mark in the 1964 Peter Sellers cult comedy The World of Henry Orient, as the too-understanding husband of Angela Lansbury’s character.

After Happy Days, he would frequently costar with Lansbury on her CBS series, Murder She Wrote.
