Jerry Van Dyke Dead at 86

Jerry Van Dyke, the actor, comedian and younger brother of Dick Van Dyke, died Friday, according to the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times. His death comes after his health reportedly deteriorated following a 2015 traffic accident.

Jerry's wife, Shirley Ann Jones, told TMZ that her husband died Friday afternoon at their Arkansas ranch. Shirley said her husband's health began deteriorating after they were both involved in a auto accident two years earlier.

In 2015, Jerry and Dick reunited on screen on ABC's sitcom "The Middle", playing a pair of fighting brothers.

Jerry Van Dyke was a well-known comedian who performed at various military bases and appeared on television programs.

He was best known for his role as Assistant Coach Luther Horatio Van Dam on the TV series Coach, which earned him four Emmy Award nominations.

He appeared as a guest star on a number of shows with his brother, including the classic "The Dick Van Dyke Show", in which he played younger brother Stacie Petrie.

Van Dyke's credits range from "My Mother the Car" in the 1960s to "Coach" in the late 1980s to, more recently, "The Middle".
