Tom Bosley, R.I.P.

The affable dad on “Happy Days” died today at 83 from lung cancer. May he rest in peace. He entertained millions of people with his acting, myself included.

I recall when “Happy Days” debuted on TV in 1974. That’s the year I started high school, and watching Richie, Fonzie, Ralph Malph, and Potsie was “must see TV” (to coin a phrase) for me and my whole family each week. I always liked Mr. Bosley’s Howard Cunningham character — A.K.A. “Mr. C.” His calm, avuncular, and wise persona was almost grandfatherly. Let’s all pray for the repose of his soul, that the Lord will grant him an eternity of happy days in His presence.
