Another guy from the 80's has departed. Famous for his role in Police Academy and Punky Brewster.
98 is a good run. RIP

Was looking him up recently and couldn't believe he was still alive.

He was so old that he was born in Helsinki, Russia. Finland didn't exist yet.

He was a very good stage actor--there were some clips on youtube for awhile

I remember watching an interview with him where he talked about Soleil Moon Frye and I got the impression that the less he had to do with her the happier he was during the filming of their series. While people saw him as this warm and cuddly character he admitted he was a strict disciplinarian in his house. Not sure if it was aimed at Frye.

What many people do not realize is he was an Opera singer for many years

I honestly didn't even know he was still alive and for some weird reason kept getting him crossed with Leslie Nielsen.

Guy was amusing in Police Academy. Totally played it straight.

RIP

Ditto, thought he had passed awhile ago....

Anyway, he was a terrific actor, great singing voice, his small but hilarious role in 'Tootsie' was my favorite of his film acting roles, though he was awesome in the Police Academy flicks as well.. RIP.
