Al Molinaro, who played the beloved chef at the drive-in on “Happy Days” died Thursday, TMZ reports.
He was 96.
Molinaro’s son told TMZ that the actor had bad gall stones, but elected not to have surgery due to his age.
Molinaro played Big Al Delvecchio on “Happy Days,” a chef at Arnold’s Drive-In. He later became owner of the Fonz’s fave hangout.
He also played Murray the Cop on ABC’s “The Odd Couple,” from 1970 to 1975.
