Tom Bosley, best known as Howard Cunningham on the popular '70s series Happy Days and as a pitchman for Glad trash bags, passed today at 83 after a struggle with lung cancer. Bosley was the quintessential ordinary guy, a model (not perfect) TV parent and an uber-goober to kids, but he always came across as honest and decent, which is how friends and fellow actors described him.
The news comes on the heels of Barbara Billingsley's passing over the weekend. Since things tend to come in threes, we're bracing for the next iconic TV parent to sign off.
