    'Leave It To Beaver' actor Tony Dow dies at 77 after cancer battle

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/entertainm...id=mailsignout

    "Leave It To Beaver" actor Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver in the popular sitcom, died Tuesday at 77.

    Dow's manager Frank Bilotta said in a email to USA TODAY Tuesday that the actor "passed from cancer."

    In a now-deleted statement on Dow's Facebook page, Bilotta and Renee James shared the news: "It is with an extremely heavy heart that we share with you the passing of our beloved Tony this morning," they said.

    "Tony was a beautiful soul - kind, compassionate, funny and humble. It was truly a joy to just be around him. His gentle voice and unpretentious manner was immediately comforting and you could not help but love him," they added.

    "The world has lost an amazing human being, but we are all richer for the memories that he has left us. From the warm reminiscences of Wally Cleaver to those of us fortunate enough to know him personally - thank you Tony. And thank you for the reflections of a simpler time, the laughter, the friendship and for the feeling that you were a big brother to us all," the post said.

    The news comes less than three months after the actor and and his wife, Lauren Shulkind put out a joint statement sharing the "very sad news" of his cancer diagnosis, though they didn't disclose details of the disease.

    "Dear Friends & Fans of Tony Dow, I have some very sad news to share with you. Unfortunately, Tony has once again been diagnosed with cancer. He is approaching this reality so bravely, but it is truly heartbreaking," the joint statement read.

    I saw another report saying he's not dead, so I'm not sure. This is like Tanya Roberts all over again.

    The alert was taken down Tuesday afternoon, and TMZ spoke to Dow?s manager, who said he was in hospice care and breathing on his own.

    Nope, he's still alive for now. What's confusing is that his own Facebook page announced it and said that his wife reported that he had died. Awkward.

    Maybe, his wife wanted the insurance money to come quickly.

    Seriously, it's just like That 70's Show Tanya Roberts. We have a thread on her for her. I can google and get it in the search results, but when I try to go to it the thread is not there. This isn't the first time this has happened to me. MDS is fraying at the seams.

    I remember that thread on here. Let me try searching.

    ETA:
    Found it, but it wasn't easy. I had to Google her name and MDS and it was on there, but the link didn't go anywhere. But I saw that it said "Bond Girl and that 70s Show" in the title of the thread so searched within MDS for "Bond Girl" and it came up. A roundabout way to get there, but found it:

    This site is held together with duct tape and spit. Sigh.

    Thank you for finding it for me and linking!

    Welp, he's officially dead now. I guess that's usually the way it goes, though.
