Hollywood actor, director, writer and producer Garry Marshall died Tuesday, according to his rep, Michelle Bega. He was 81.
He died at 5 p.m. PT Tuesday from complications of pneumonia following a stroke at a hospital in Burbank, Calif.
A beloved figure in show business, Marshall leaves behind a legacy as a hitmaker on television and in films, a comedian with impeccable delivery, and a warm personality to those he encountered.
He was born in the Bronx to a tap dance teacher and an industrial film director. “My mother was special, she gave us our humor,” Marshall recalled in an interview with USA TODAY in April. “I remember her saying, ‘Never be boring.You gotta entertain people.’ And at 16 years old, I didn’t know what boring meant. I said, what is boring, Ma?’ She said, ‘your father,”” he said, chuckling.
