Tom Poston, 1921-2007

You probably know that he married Suzanne Pleshette when he was 80 years old. You probably didn't know that, like me, he was allergic to onions. You probably didn't care that he appeared on The Match Game. Tom Poston, dead at the age of 85.

His dying words were: "Bill Daily lives on."

Tom Poston had been doing radio commercials for Merlin Muffler and Brake Shops for several years, until late last year, when he was replaced by a similarly gentle, folksy actor reading the same scripts. I would rather they had retired the ad campaign. It's not the same without Mr. Poston.
