(FOX NEWS) – “Leave It to Beaver” star Tony Dow has died at the age of 77, Fox News Digital can confirm.
Dow’s son Christopher told Fox News Digital he spoke with his father’s manager, who made the official Facebook announcement Wednesday.
“Although this is a very sad day, I have comfort and peace that he is in a better place,” Christopher said in the Facebook statement.
“He was the best Dad anyone could ask for. He was my coach, my mentor, my voice of reason, my best friend, my best man in my wedding, and my hero. My wife said something powerful and shows the kind of man he was. She said: ‘Tony was such a kind man. He had such a huge heart and I’ve never heard Tony say a bad or negative thing about anyone.’”
