David Lander, who was best known for playing Squiggy on the beloved sitcom Laverne & Shirley, has died at the age of 73.

Lander died of multiple sclerosis, which he battled for the past 37 years. Variety confirmed that he passed away on Friday night (December 4) at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

While students at Carnegie Mellon University, David and his longtime friend Michael McKean created the characters Squiggy and Lenny. They then played the characters on Laverne & Shirley for the show’s eight seasons.

Lander publicly revealed his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis back in 1999 and became an advocate for those also battling the disease.

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to all of David‘s loved ones during this difficult time.

We have sadly lost all of these stars in 2020.
