You may remember him for his work as judge Harry T. Stone on the wildly popular 1980s sitcom “Night Court.” That role defined his career and made him a household name. Sadly, Harry Anderson has passed away. He was 65.
Anderson was found dead in his Asheville, North Carolina home on Monday morning. Asheville police discovered his body at 6:41 a.m.
According to Fox News, there is no official cause of death. No foul play is suspected.
However, Anderson’s son, Dashiell, told TMZ that his father passed away of natural causes.
In addition to his role on “Night Court,” Anderson appeared for a long time before that in “Saturday Night Live.” After “Night Court” had its run from 1984 to 1992, Anderson appeared in “Cheers.” From 1993 to 1997, he starred in his own sitcom, “Dave’s World.”
Anderson wasn’t only an actor. He also was an accomplished magician who opened up a magic shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
After his run of fame, he kept a low profile, appearing occasionally in shows like “30 Rock,” “Son of the Beach” and “Comedy Bang! Bang!”
Anderson is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Morgan, and their two children.
Please pray for the family during this difficult time of loss. Be sure to read about a prominent "giant" in the NFL Giants organization who recently passed away after a life of 90 years.
