Don Rickles Has Passed Away at 90

Don Rickles

Legendary comic actor Don Rickles passed away today at age 90 from kidney failure.

Rickles is survived by his wife of over 50 years, Barbara Sklar, his daughter Mindy, and grandchildren Ethan and Harrison.

The family are requesting that any donations be made to the Larry Rickles Endowment Fund at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Don Rickles was set to return as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in Toy Story 4, which is in pre-production for a planned 2019 release. Neither Disney nor Pixar have released a statement, but it seems unlikely that Rickles would have recorded his lines before passing (although some may have been recorded).

On behalf of everyone at Cinema Vortex, our thoughts and prayers are will the family of Don Rickles.
