R.I.P., Uncle Leo

I've mentioned before that the older I get the more I appreciate people in whatever calling who make life pleasanter for me. Jack Warden is my favorite character actor of all time but there have been dozens of others from Ted Knight (Ted Baxter) to Roland Young and Billie Burke in the Thirties. My favorite Seinfeld character was Uncle Leo. His working class viewpoint was a true (if sometimes annoying) contrast to the rather spoiled take of the four main characters. He improved every scene he was in. So long, Len.

Here's a salute to Uncle Leo. The link will take you to a sampling of his best scenes.
