“My heart is broken to pieces and I will cry and cry until I just won’t,” Harrington said in her post. Harrington Jr. was born in New York City, the son of a song and dance man. After the Air Force, he began working in the NBC mailroom, eventually getting a job as a junior advertising salesman, The Washington Post reported. But his true talents were as an actor, and for nine seasons in the 1970s and 80s he played the comic relief on CBS’ “One Day at a Time,” which starred a then-unknown Valerie Bertinelli. In later years, he made guest appearances on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and Bertinelli’s TV Land sitcom, “Hot in Cleveland.” h/t nbcnews
