R.I.P GRANDPA MUNSTER 1923-2006

After years of failing health, actor Al Lewis passed away Friday night.

Associated Press reports:
Lewis, with his wife at his bedside, passed away Friday night, said Bernard White, program director at WBAI-FM, where the actor hosted a weekly radio program. White made the announcement on the air during the Saturday slot where Lewis usually appeared.

"To say that we will miss his generous, cantankerous, engaging spirit is a profound understatement," White said.

Both seasons of his classic series The Munsters are now available on DVD. The second season includes features on the stars of the show, including a whole documentary on the intriguing life of Lewis.
