Actor Len Lesser has died at the age of 88 due to complications from pneumonia.

RIP Uncle Leo!

From CNN:

“It was very peaceful,” his daughter, Michele Lesser, told CNN, saying the family had hoped for a quick and painless death. “He was a great grandpa, and an amazing father. He had a heart of gold — and a sense of humor of platinum.”
