Famed comedian Larry Storch, best known for his role on the hit TV show “F Troop,” died in his sleep overnight. He was 99.

A message shared on the late-performer star’s Facebook page on Friday from his family read that, Storch’s loved ones were in mourning following the death of the comedic character, NBC News reported. His most famous role was a Corporal Randolph Agarn on the hit 1960’s series.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share with you the news our beloved Larry passed away in his sleep overnight,” the statement read.

“We are shocked and at a loss for words at the moment,” the statement added. “Please remember he loved each and every one of you and wouldn’t want you to cry over his passing. He is reunited with his wife Norma and his beloved ‘F Troop’ cast and so many friends and family.”

Storch was a staple of 1960’s, 1970’s, and even 1980’s TV and made numerous guest appearances on such shows as “Gilligan’s Island,” “Car 54,” “Get Smart,” “Married with Children,” “I Dream of Jeanie,” and “Fantasy Island,” just to name a few.


The comedian is also known for his voice-over work in popular cartoons and forms impressions. One voice people might recognize that he did was for The Joker in the Batman TV series from 1968-1969, IMDb noted.

After he served in the Navy in World War II, Storch got his start in Hollywood when he was discovered by Hollywood great, Lucille Ball, the Laugh Button noted. He was part of the entertainment business starting in the 1940’s all the way up through last July when he made his last public appearance, the outlet noted.
