Comedy writer and producer Gary Marshall dies at 81

Gary Marshall, successful writer and producer, died from a pneumonia complication at the age of 81. Marshall is known for creating some of the most iconic shows in the 70’s, the most remembered being “Days of our Lives”.  He went on the big screen to direct movies such as “Pretty Woman” and “The Princess Diaries”. 

He was an actor, producer, director, and writer.  He died at 5 pm PT last Tuesday in a hospital in Burbank, California. He leaves behind an enormous track of comedy, success, hit shows and movies, plus leaving a void in the lives of those who were lucky enough to enjoy his warm personality.

Happy Days is one TV success that still airs on NBC.   Robin Williams was catapulted to fame thanks to Marshal´s creation of “Mork and Mindy”.  “Pretty Woman” as well turned Julia Roberts into a hit celebrity while “The Princess Diaries” made Anne Hathaway into a teen favorite.

Late on Tuesday, Richard Geer, star in “Pretty Woman” issued a statement, “Garry of course was one of those truly important people one is blessed to meet in one’s lifetime. Besides being the pulse and life force of ‘Pretty Woman’… a steady helmsman on a ship that could have easily capsized… he was a super fine and decent man, husband and father who brought real joy and love and infectious good spirits to everything and everyone he crossed paths with. Everyone loved Garry. He was a mentor and a cheerleader and one of the funniest men who ever lived. He had a heart of the purest gold and a soul full of mischief. He was Garry.”

He is survived by his wife Barbara to whom he was married since 1963. His son, Scott, is a film director and his two daughters, Lori and Kathleen are an actress and casting director and an actress respectively.
