"Grandpa" Al Lewis, æ’’ìÉ

The AP reports,

Al Lewis, the cigar-chomping patriarch of “The Munsters” whose work as a basketball scout, restaurateur and political candidate never eclipsed his role as Grandpa from the television sitcom, died after years of failing health. He was 82.
The actor was widely reported to have been born in 1910, but his son, Ted Lewis, said Saturday that his father was born in 1923.
Lewis, with his wife at his bedside, died Friday night, said Bernard White, program director at WBAI-FM, where the actor hosted a weekly radio program. White made the announcement on the air during the Saturday slot where Lewis usually appeared.
