Kenneth “Ken” Patrick Weatherwax
(September 29, 1955 – December 7, 2014)

Ken Weatherwax, best known for playing Pugsley
Addams on the original The Addams Family TV 
series on ABC from 1964 to 196, died in his sleep
Sunday morning. 

After The Addams Family was canceled, Weatherwax
found it difficult to get work in Hollywood and was
typecast as Pugsley well into his teens.

At 17, he entered the U.S. Army and later made
appearances at conventions and performed some
small acting jobs including voice-overs. He had also
worked as a set builder on movie lots from 1992-2002.    

With the passing of Ken Weatherwax, the only regular
cast members from The Addams Family still living are
John Astin, Lisa Loring, and Felix Silla.
