Actor and comedian Jerry Van ****, who won four Emmy nominations for his role in the US sitcom Coach, has died at 86.  His wife Shirley Ann Jones told US media he had died at his Arkansas ranch on Friday.

The actor's health had been waning since a 2015 traffic accident, she said. Van **** was the younger brother of actor **** Van ****, known for the musical films Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

 

He also starred in My Mother the Car.

I was just watching some episodes of Coach the other day. Jerry had great comic talent.

RIP.

RIP Jerry.

I was just musing that. Surely TA and the moderators can come up with a solution. In all seriousness, it should just be removed from the 'Forbidden' list and left to the moderators to delete any misuse of it.

And yet one could say Jerry Van Lesbian and Richard Van Lesbian and it will be OK. Very silly, in my humble opinion. RIP Jerry. And condolences to Richard on the loss of his younger brother.

Rip Jerry.  Always loved his work.  In many ways he was funnier than his brother.

He played a mean banjo as well. He was good in McClintock! with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.
