Charles Sherman, of Charles Sherman Public Relations, confirmed Asner’s death to CBS News. A statement from Asner’s family on his Twitter account also confirmed his death.
“We are sorry to say that our beloved patriarch passed away this morning peacefully. Words cannot express the sadness we feel,” the tweet said. “With a kiss on your head- Goodnight dad. We love you.”
