Rip! James Avery “Uncle Phil” Fresh Prince of Belair He will be missed
I don’t know about you… but I was a major James Avery fan. Watched him as “Uncle Phil” on the still hit TV show #FreshPrince of Bel Air starring Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali. Its kinda crazy yesterday I saw a interview on the home page of BLOG TALK RADIO with James Avery. Listened to it and the next day. He is no longer with us! I would like to everyone to pray for his friends and family. He will be missed!
This was the interview I was listening to.
We’re sad to report, James Avery, the father on the classic show Fresh Prince of Bel Air has died at age 65.
Sources close to the actor tell TMZ he died in an L.A. hospital last night. Avery had recently undergone surgery for an undisclosed illness and took a turn for the worse late yesterday.
According to the site, his wife, Barbara, had been at his bedside but left for a short period of time to grab a bite to eat and when se returned she learned of her husband’s death.
Other celebs reacted to the actor’s passing and we’re sure more are to soon follow.
Avery’s role as Uncle Phil will forever be embedded in our memory as one of the grandest characters in pop culture.
RIP! Our prayers and thought are with his family and the cast of Fresh Prince.
