RIP Jerry Van Dyke - 1931 to 2018 (Age 86)
From Internet Movie database just a few hours ago :

Jerry Van Dyke, the famed younger brother of Dick Van Dyke, has died TMZ has learned. Jerry's wife, Shirley, tells us he died Friday afternoon at their Arkansas ranch with her by his side.

She says they were involved in a car accident over 2 years ago and Jerry's health had deteriorated since. We're told Dick visited them at the ranch over the Christmas holiday. A beloved comedian just like his brother, Jerry pursued stand-up as a young man and performed at military bases around the world.

He made his acting debut on "The Dick Van Dyke" show and followed that up with appearances on "The Ed Sullivan Show" before becoming a regular on "The Judy Garland Show." Jerry's best known for his role on "Coach," where he played Asst. Coach Luther Van Dam alongside Craig T. Nelson. He also had major roles on "Yes, Dear" and most recently, "The Middle."

Border : (and let's not forget his funny yet infamous sitcom, "My Mother The Car".)

He was 86.

The episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show,
that introduced me to his brother , "Sleeping Brother"

In the episode, he can only do his comedy act while sleep walking.

His hilarious bit of rock N' roller "Skid Row".
Long before there was a band by that name.


RIP Jerry Van Dyke you deserved just as much fame as your big brother.
