A great comedian. Every single one of us have seen him in either movies or on TV. RIP.

I envy people like Jerry Stiller. Someone who loved his work and worked late into his life.

Most of us work hard to get to mid 60s and then hang it up.....and we look forward to hanging it up.

I should embrace my career differently in the sense that I could work many years past normal retirement age. I hopefully do that and should actually look forward to doing that.

That's my dad. He has been selling and engineering cotton gin plants (not the gin itself) since he was 22 years old. He was doing it internationally as recently as last February setting up a plant in Uzbekistan. He's 84 years old, 20 years older than I am, but I retired 7 years before him. But that changed for him last week. After 60 years he got laid off. Corvid killed the industry. What a way to end a career like that.

Some people are just life-long workers, and some people just retire early.

Maybe it skips a generation. My dad still volunteered part-time at the job he retired from after 25 years, until the China Virus invaded America unchecked.

No more feats of physical strength for Mr stiller.

Loved that guy. His son is a good legacy.

Stiller was a brilliant and very funny man. I remember as a kid seeing him on the Tonight Show and Carol Burnett with his wife (Anne Meara, for you young folk), and of course on Seinfeld as well as King of Queens. Any scene he was in, he'd steal it.

RIP Mr. Stiller

I agree 100%. Why can't people leave their political pettiness at the door for just one post? There are always plenty of posts about Trump for hateful people to puke out their vitriol.

I don't understand. It's probably better that I don't.

Bigly sad.

In other news, Jerry Stiiler was funny and will be missed.

Nevermind I see it now.

Never met him, but RIP Cousin! Wish I would have had the chance to meet him, but I doubt he even knew I existed. Maybe I will meet Ben someday and ask for his apology for Zoolander's effect on our family dignity.
