Good Bye Tom Bosley…we’ll miss you Mr. C!
Just a quick post to note the passing of Tom Bosley, or as we “over 40’s” affectionately remember him as, “Mr. C’ from Happy Days. Watching Happy Days was a rite of passage growing up and Tom Bosley’s sage fatherly advice was not only for his onscreen family but for many of us watching on TV as well.
Remember, there was only 4 or 5 stations back then with everyone pretty much tuned to the same show; and for us, Tuesday night was Happy Days night. It was simple time when the father of a TV family could still be portrayed as loving, competent, and full of wisdom as opposed to crass and moronic. For those of you under 20, back then a dad could even be portrayed to be as wise, if not wiser, than the mom…crazy eh?
The accolades coming out surrounding Tom Bosley’s death from the likes of Henry Winkler and Ron Howard would testify to a man who was very much in real life like his compassionate onscreen persona.
When icons of my childhood pass on, its always sobering realizing time stops for no one.
So farewell and God Speed Tom Bosley…we’ll miss you Mr. C!
