He was beloved, talented, prolific, and influential. Garry Marshall, the long-time writer-director of popular movies and long-running television sitcoms died at age 81 in a Burbank hospital Tuesday of complications from pneumonia after having a stroke.
Marshall's massive television hits included "Mork & Mindy," "Laverne & Shirley," "The Odd Couple," and "Happy Days." On the big screen, his credits included "Pretty Woman," "Runaway Bride," "Frankie and Johnny," and too many others to recount here.
His films always had a roster of A-list actors because they loved working with and learning from Garry Marshall.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara, and the couple's three children, Lori, Kathleen and Scott.
