His son, John Kirby, confirmed his death in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

“My father loved acting and aside from his extraordinary professional career in television, film & theater, he never stopped working on it from his early years in New York on scholarship with Lee Strasberg for 9 years, LA’s Theatre East & The Actors Studio.

"It was very painful for him when he no longer could perform. I am so glad his wonderful work will live on…

"He was a great father who loved Bruno and me and as a family he made it his business for us to tour in these professional Summer Stock packages, something we would all look forward to every summer…

"I’m glad you’re up there with Bruno and so many of our loved ones."
