Humpday Afternoon Diversion: Remembering Tom Bosley

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 20, 2010 8:00PM

The passing of actor Tom Bosley made me and possibly others feel just the slightest bit older yesterday. Mr. Bosley, best remembered as family patriarch Howard "Mr. C" Cunningham on "Happy Days," was a Chicago native; attended DePaul; performed at the suburban Woodstock Opera House alongside Paul Newman; was a Navy veteran; and a Tony Award winner for his portrayal of legendary New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia in "Firoello."

After "Happy Days" left the airwaves in 1984, Mr. Bosley went on to star in "Father Dowling Mysteries" and did steady work in commercials and even this workout video that's been edited to feature the good parts of Mr. Bosley's appearance.
