Okay, 2020, you've left your mark- now, please leave everyone alone! This is what every Fred Willard fan must be thinking today as news of his passing began to make headlines. The actor passed away yesterday, according to his daughter, Hope Mulbarger. She shared with CNN he died "at the fantastic age of 86 years old. He kept moving, working and making us happy until the very end. We loved him so very much! We will miss him forever." Ironically, Willard's 'Modern Family' character was killed off in this years series finale. The Emmy nominee is best known for his roles in 'Best In Show,' 'Roseanne,' 'This Is Spinal Tap,' 'The Bold and the Beautiful' and 'The Loud House.' Willard is predeceased by his wife, Mary (2018) and survived by daughter, Hope and grandson, Freddie. We send so much love and good thoughts to all who knew and loved him! He was a true gem.
