Actor. He is best remembered for appearances in television comedy series as "The Phil Silvers Show," "All in the Family" and "The Brady Bunch." Born in Kansas City, Missouri, and raised in New York City, he had his first success on "The Phil Silvers Show," which ran from 1955 to 1959, playing 'Corporal Henshaw', the right-hand man to Silvers' 'Master Sergeant Ernie Bilko'. He went on to play Archie Bunker's neighbor 'Barney' in "All in the Family," and different roles on at least eight episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show." On the popular and long syndicated series "The Brady Bunch" he gained notoriety as "Sam the Butcher", the boyfriend of 'Alice' the housekeeper.
