Death is… hardly the right reason to update a web log twice in 1 day but I really wanted to say something about this passing.

I can still remember watching “Father Dowling Mysteries”. Seeing this priest character go about solving crimes with a nun named Steve as his sidekick was something I couldn’t get enough of (why this series hasn’t appeared on DVD yet is a real mystery).

But long before the priest there was this hardware store owner & dad from Milwaukee in “Happy Days”. While the series shifted its focus from the wholesome teen Richie to the cooler Fonzie, Howard “Mr C” Cunningham remained a comforting sight for me throughout the series.

In both of these roles there was something about that particular face & voice, something that made me feel at ease & welcome. Somehow as though you’d known him personally for several years. So, maybe it wasn’t so odd you played both a dad & a father.

It really saddens me you’re no longer around Mr C…

Father & Dad

Tom Bosley RIP 😦
