Columbo Died (1927 – 2011)

Hollywood legend Peter Falk, best known as TV’s Columbo, and to my generation, the grandpa narrating The Princess Bride to Fred Savage, died last night at the age of 83, according to ABC News:

“Falk died peacefully at his Beverly Hills home in the evening of June 23, 2011,” according to the statement. Falk is survived by his wife, Shera, of 34 years and two daughters from a previous marriage.

He made you think he was stupid, but really he was smart.

Rest in Peace.
