Tom Bosley has died after a brief battle with lung cancer in Rancho Mirage, Calif., his family confirmed Tuesday. He was 83.
"We were a make-believe family for 10 years, and like a real family for over 30. He will be so, so missed," Bosley's former "Happy Days" co-star Henry Winkler told E! News.
"Mr. Tom Bosley will be missed by many. He was a great actor, teacher and man," Scott Baio, who also appeared on the sitcom, said via Twitter.
Bosley is survived by his wife Patricia Bosley; his brother Richard Bosley; his daughter Amy Baer; stepdaughters Kimberly diBonaventura and Jamie Van Meter; and seven grandchildren.
