(FOX NEWS) – Comic actor Fred Willard has died at the age of 86.

The beloved star with several acting credits — including “Best in Show,” “This is Spinal Tap” and “Everybody Loves Raymond” — died of natural causes, his daughter confirmed to Fox News.

“My father passed away very peacefully last night at the fantastic age of 86 years old. He kept moving, working and making us happy until the very end. We loved him so very much!” his daughter Hope Mulbarger told Fox News in a statement on Saturday. “We will miss him forever.”

Willard’s acting career spanned five decades. He got his start in Chicago’s renowned Second City sketch comedy troupe before becoming a familiar face on the small screen.

He recently completed his Emmy-nominated recurring role on “Modern Family” and can be seen later this month in his recurring role as Steve Carrell’s dad in the Netflix series “Space Force.”
