Jerry Stiller, the comedic legend who played hilariously crusty fathers on “Seinfeld” and “The King Of Queens,” has died of natural causes, his son, Ben Stiller, announced Monday. He was 92. “He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years,” the younger Stiller wrote on Twitter. The elder Stiller, born in New York City, spent much of the first part of his decadeslong career as half of the comedy duo Stiller and Meara with wife Anne Meara, who died in 2015. The two appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” dozens of times and became the top comic couple for a while. In 2001, he also received a Grammy nomination in the Best Spoken Word category for his performance on the album “Married To Laughter – A Love Story Featuring Anne Meara.”
