The death of Happy Days star Tom Bosley left many saddened – and director Ron Howard without his onscreen dad.
"Tom's insight, talent, strength of character and comic timing made him a vital central figure in the Happy Days experience," says Howard, who played Richie Cunningham on the sitcom.
"A great father and husband, and a wonderful artist, Tom led by example, and made us all laugh while he was doing it," Howard adds. "My last conversations with Tom reflected the love of life and peace of mind that he always maintained throughout his full and rewarding life."

A jaw-dropping 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day may have made The Hills star Heidi Montag the happiest she's ever been, but it also made her fodder for some comics. Now Montag is joining the laugh brigade, with the help of Funny or Die and Oscar-winning Ron Howard, who's directed a new video in which Montag stars.
Its mission: To urge Congress to enact financial reform.
"I was honored to work with the amazing Ron Howard," Montag, 23, tells PEOPLE. "He was even more incredible than I could have imagined – kind, generous and made me feel so comfortable – he made me feel confident in my talent."

He may have made his first splash as adorable Opie Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show, but the first and last love of Ron Howard's life is making movies, and you can expect him to be doing it until the very end.
"I want to do this until I drop," he tells AARP The Magazine in the July/August issue. "When John Huston was directing his last movie, he was in a wheelchair and on oxygen. That's my idea of a good goal."
The 55-year-old director of Angels & Demons, who says he fell in love with movies when he saw 1967's The Graduate, fesses up to being a homebody despite being the man who helmed the astronaut epic Apollo 13.
"I'm not a very adventuresome person," he says. "People say, 'You love space. Would you want to go on the shuttle?' Well no, I wouldn't. At the end of my life, I'd rather have made another film or spent time with my family."

ALTERED: Star Jones Reynolds, who worked as an assistant district attorney for six years before turning to TV work in 1992, for the first time listed her profession as TV personality instead of attorney while filling out customs forms during a European trip. "I guess I've crossed over to the dark side," she tells the Associated Press. "It felt truthful. I'm sure it's strange for my father, who wants to know where all the money went for law school."
