Jerry Stiller played one of the funniest characters in one my favorite sitcoms King of Queens. The veteran actor played the sarcastic dad who stayed in the basement of the home of his daughter and son in law. Before joining the King of Queens, he was on Seinfeld from 1993 to 1998. He got an Emmy nomination in 1997 for his role in Seinfeld. Jerry Stiller was not only known for being an actor, but also the dad to famous actor Ben Stiller. Ben went on Twitter and shared the news. Jerry Stiller was 93 years old.
I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes. He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years. He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad. pic.twitter.com/KyoNsJIBz5— Ben Stiller (@RedHourBen) May 11, 2020
