John Mahoney, who was best known as Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce's irascible dad Martin Crane on Frasier, has died. He was 77.

Mahoney died Sunday in Chicago, publicist Paul Martino told The Hollywood Reporter.

As a curmudgeonly retired cop, Mahoney received two supporting actor Emmy nominations for his work on the 1993-2004 NBC hit.

A former Midwestern medical-magazine editor who quit his day job at nearly 40 to study acting in Chicago, Mahoney had taught English at Western Illinois University in the early 1970s.

He became a fixture at Chicago's fabled Steppenwolf Theater and soon ventured to the New York stage. He distinguished himself in an off-Broadway production of Orphans, for which he received a Theatre World Award.

R.I.P. Sad

I didn't watch the "Frasier" TV show, but I remember him from the 1987 movie Tin Men.

Frasier was one of my all-time favorites. I'm heartbroken by this news today.

I never watched Frasier when it was in prime time, but they have been showing multiple re-runs each night on the Hallmark channel for years and for a while I watched several a night. I finally got to where I don't watch it but not before seeing each show (11 years worth) at least twice.

There was a good show with Mahoney having a bigger role than normal where he tried to get out of dating the mother of Frasier's girlfriend at the time by telling her he was gay. She then brought a gay friend of hers over to fix him up with Mahoney and he was stuck pretending to be gay the rest of the evening.
