John Mahoney, best-known as the father of Frasier Crane for 11 seasons on NBC’s Frasier has passed away in Chicago at the age of 77. TMZ is reporting that the Emmy-nominated actor and SAG Award-winner died while in hospice care, according to his publicist.

Mahoney enjoyed a long career as a character actor in film and on TV for over a decade before he landed the role as the father to Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde-Pierce’s Crane brothers on the NBC hit. His relationship with his old chair and his dog Eddie became a mainstay on the show, which was one of NBC’s highest-rated shows during their Must-See TV run in the ’90s until the show ended in 2004.
