Always watched this show in the afternoons when I got home from school. Losing a lot of Hollywood talent this year.

Apparently he is not dead yet. However it does appear imminent.

Dow is reportedly near death, receiving hospice care at home, with his son Christopher Dow now telling the media that his father is in “his last hours.”

Los Angeles ABC reporter George Pennacchio just posted on Facebook that Dow’s wife, Lauren, mistakenly thought her husband had died during the night at their home and mistakenly informed Dow’s management that he had passed.

One of my favorite Wally lines: "Gee Dad, a guy has to have a best friend, even if he is a creep." -Wally to Ward re: Eddie Haskell. Ward had no answer to that.

Ooops! He hasn't died actually.... :footinmouth:
UPDATE, with statements from Dow’s son & management Tony Dow’s son and management team have confirmed that the actor is still alive, with his representatives attributing the earlier misinformation to the distraught state of the Leave It To Beaver actor’s wife.

“This is a difficult time,” Dow’s son Christopher Dow said in a statement posted on the actor’s Facebook page. “Dad is at home, under hospice care, and in his last hours. My wife and I are by his side along with many friends that have visited. He has a fighting heart.”

Earlier, in a note marked “URGENT UPDATE” on the Facebook page, representatives Frank Bilotta and Renee James write, “This morning Tony’s wife Lauren, who was very distraught, had notified us that Tony had passed and asked that we notify all his fans. As we are sure you can understand, this has been a very trying time for her. We have since received a call from Tony’s daughter-in-law saying that while Tony is not doing well, he has not yet passed. Tony’s son Christopher and his daughter-in-law Melissa have also been by his side comforting him, and we will keep you posted on any future updates.”

Odd to think "Bummer" when it's not really. And I can get the wife being distraught and the people believing her.
