Tom Bosley Overview:
Character actor, Tom Bosley, was born Thomas Edward Bosley on Oct 1, 1927 in Chicago, IL. Bosley died at the age of 83 on Oct 19, 2010 in Rancho Mirage, CA .
Jaunty, jovial, chubby-cheeked, not-too-tall American actor with dark hair, cheery grin and knitted eyebrows. Although Bosley knocked around the show business scene for close to 50 years in co-star roles, films never really claimed him. It was the theatre - the title role in the Broadway production of Fiorello! won him all sorts of awards including a Tony - and television that brought him his highest profile. From 1974 to 1984 he was Howard Cunningham, father of the family in the immensely successful 1950s teenage nostalgia comedy show Happy Days. In 1987, he became the sleuthing priest in The Father Dowling Mysteries.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
