He spent more than seven-decades in the entertainment industry. His close friend, Alan Rode, confirmed the news of his passing on Twitter. He was best known for his time spent on "The Twilight Zone" and the "Community" series.

"Fellow 'Community' actor Yvette Nicole Brown also took to Twitter, writing, 'I knew the day we’d have to say goodbye to this lovely man would come sooner than any of us were ready. But knowing that doesn’t make it any easier. #RichardErdman was JOY walking. Anyone who saw him on @CommunityTV gleefully stealing every scene he was in knows that’s true,'" wrote Fox.
