He will be sorely missed by all... He was the father we all wish we had and hope to be!

Re: Tom Bosley, Happy Days' Dad, Dies 83

Recently, I have been watching re-runs of Happy Days and it breaks my heart every time I watch an episode. Tom Bosley reminded me so much of my father who passed away when I was 14. I grew up watching him and the whole gang of Happy Days and felt like they were part of my family. Mr. Bosley, you will be missed very much and were loved by all. May you rest in peace forever.

I am really going to miss this guy... Who didn't want him as their dad growing up?
