happy days cast Tom Bosley's death: 'Happy Days' co stars, other celebs reactTom Bosley, best known as Mr. Cunningham on “Happy Days,” passed away Tuesday morning (Oct. 19). His “Happy Days” co-stars were quick to express their sadness (via E!)

“Tom’s insight, talent, strength of character and comic timing made him a vital central figure in the ‘Happy Days’ experience,” says Bosley’s on-screen son Ron Howard. “A
great father and husband, and a wonderful artist, Tom led by example,
and made us all laugh while he was doing it. My last conversations with
Tom reflected the love of life and peace of mind that he always
maintained throughout his full and rewarding life. I miss him already.”

He will so, so be missed.” And his on-screen wife Marion Ross says, “He was my husband for 11 years and the father of the company in many ways. We made a perfect couple.” Other celebrities have taken to Twitter to express their sympathy and sorrow: Scott Baio: “Mr. Tom Bosley will be missed by many.
