We're sad to hear this, but at least he lived a nice, long life.
Len Lesser, the actor who played the absolutely HIGHlarious Uncle Leo on Seinfeld has passed away at 88 from cancer-related pneumonia.
Here's what his family had to say in a statement:
"Heaven got a great comedian and actor today. The outpouring of sympathy we've already received has been amazing and is so greatly appreciated. Thank you to all the people who helped make my father's last journey special and surrounded with love."
Aside from Seinfeld, Lesser had an expansive career, which included parts on TV shows such as The Munsters, ER, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Castle. Some of his film credits include The Outlaw Josey Wales and Kelly's Heroes.
Our thoughts go out to Lesser's family and friends.
Thanks for making us laugh, Len! You shall be missed!
