After a lengthy battle with cancer, Kim Tyler passed away at 66. The actor is best remembered for his roles in "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" and "The Addams Family."

The Los Angeles Times published an obituary for Kim Perry, who died on February 10, 2021. The actor battled cancer and lost his fight at the age of 66. 

Tyler became a household name due to his roles in "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" and "The Addams Family" as a child; Perry worked with  MGM and Warner Bros. into his teenage years. 

SURROUNDED BY FAMILY

"The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" star died in the comfort of his own home in Hollywood Heights and was surrounded by those he loved most. His obituary shared how Perry will be remembered as it reads

"A talented musician, a lover of life, and proficient poker player, Kim was also an amateur videographer."

Perry leaves behind his wife, Michelle, to whom he was married for 42 years. The child actor will be buried in Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, California. 

WHERE HE STARTED

Perry, who was born in 1954, made his start in Hollywood at a young age with his role in the adaptation of the novel "Please Don't Eat the Daisies," which was written by Jean Kerr as a career highlight. 

Segal was 87 at the time of his death and held an Oscar nomination for his role in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

Perry was ten-years-old when he made his debut on screen and went on to fulfill roles in "The Addams Family," "My Favorite Martian," and other on-screen favorites. 

LAST CREDIT

The actor decided to move in a different direction after starring in "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" for two seasons and a total of 58 episodes. 

The hit show was the last that Perry formed a part of, making Kyle Nash the last character that he stepped into the shoes of. Kyle was the oldest son of the show's beloved family. 

HOLLYWOOD'S LOSS 

Perry isn't the only beloved Hollywood star that has died in 2021. George Segal was laid to rest after he died from complications following bypass surgery. 

Segal was 87 at the time of his death and held an Oscar nomination for his role in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and became part of the television favorites when he joined "The Goldbergs."

Academy Award winner Leon Gast also died this year. The filmmaker was known for spending over 22 years working on his documentary "When We Were Kings."

The film documented the iconic fight between Muhammed Ali and George Foreman that took place in 1974. Gast passed away at 85 with an Oscar behind his name.
