Leah Remini Remembers Late Jerry Stiller As 'Much More Than a Comedy Legend'



"They just don’t make ‘em like Jerry. He is, to me, the last of his kind," she continues. "He will be sadly missed not only by the cast and crew of the King of Queens, but by the many he entertained."

The actress also went on to send her best wishes to his family, who she is "sure are feeling the absence of this very big loving, soul."

Remini also shared a loving tribute on Instagram on Monday in honor of Jerry, noting how "lucky" she was to work with the comedy giant and get to know him personally.

"I will be forever grateful for the memories, the fatherly talks off-screen and for the many years of laughter, the kindness he had shown to me and my family … You will be so very missed Jerry," she wrote.

Ben announced Monday that his father died of "natural causes" at age 92.

"I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes," Ben, 54, said in a tweet. "He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years."

He concluded, "He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad."

Jerry's death comes after he suffered a medical scare early last year, PEOPLE reported at the time.

Jerry — famous for playing George Costanza’s dad in Seinfeld — lost his wife, Meara, in 2015 after she had suffered multiple strokes. She was 85 at the time of her death.
