Rest in Peace, William Schallert

Veteran television actor William Schallert, best known for his role as Patty Duke's father on The Patty Duke Show, has passed away at the age of 93.

Mr. Schallert was born in Los Angeles. His father was a drama critic for the Los Angeles Times, which no doubt sparked a love of acting for William. 

While Mr. Schallert did work on stage and in movies, it was his many roles on television that made him a legend. His acting resume reads like an exhaustive list of classic television, including shows like Perry Mason, Bonanza, Dobie Gillis, Murphy Brown and so many more.

Mr. Schallert is survived by his wife of over 60 years and his four children.
