(FoxNews) –
Bill Macy, the actor who made an indelible imprint on 1970s
sitcoms with his portrayal on Norman Lear "
Maude" of the loving if always
up-for-an-argument Walter Findlay, died last night in Los Angeles.

Macy’s death was announced by his producer and manager Matt Beckoff,
writing on
Facebook “My buddy Bill Macy passed away at 7:13pm tonight. He
was a spitfire right up to the end. My condolences to his beautiful wife
Samantha Harper Macy.”

Macy costarred in the 1972-78 All in the Family spin-off series opposite Bea
Arthur, who played the outspoken liberal Maude Findlay, a cousin of Family‘s
Edith Bunker.
