Marvin Kaplan, who was best known as Henry on the TV series Alice, has died at 89.

According to a statement from Theatre West:

It is with a sad and heavy heart to inform you our very own Marvin Kaplan passed away today at 5 a.m. in his sleep. We loved Marvin. He will truly be missed.

He also had to be one of the last survivors of the arguable classic It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963). Carl Reiner and Barrie Chase come to mind.

I met Marvin a few years ago at an autograph show; seemed to be a sweetheart.
