Today marks a horrible loss for classic television.

Conrad Bain, who played beloved father Phillip Drummond on Diff’rent Strokes, has passed away at age 89.

The veteran actor died at a retirement home in Livermore, CA of natural causes on Monday evening.

Conrad's daughter, Jennifer Bain, said:

"He was an amazing person. He was a lot like Mr. Drummond, but much more interesting in real life. He was an amazing father. Dad had a kind heart," said Jennifer Bain. "He was an open-hearted man."

Besides his work opposite Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges, Conrad also played an opinionated, angry neighbor on the 80s hit series Maude.

He is survived by four children and a twin brother.

This news is devastating, but Conrad's legacy will continue to make the masses laugh for years to come.

    R.I.P I thought he was already gone. When I was little, I viewed him as an old man. And I never hear about him, ever.
