A beloved comedian just like his brother, Jerry pursued stand-up as a young man and performed at military bases around the world. He made his acting debut on “The Dick Van Dyke” show and followed that up with appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show” before becoming a regular on “The Judy Garland Show.”

He also appeared on The Andy Griffith Show among several other great shows.

Van Dyke was also known for his role on “Coach” where he played Assistant Coach Luther Van Dam. The role garnered him four Emmy nominations. His latest television appearance was on ABC’s hit show “The Middle” in 2015, Fox News reports.

Entertainment Weekly, reporting on Van Dyke’s death, recalled a 2015 interview he did with The Los Angeles Times, in which he said of his brother Dick, “I looked up to him as a kid.”

The star of “Mary Poppins” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” returned the compliment, EW said.  “In the service, you can steal other people’s material,” Dick said. “I didn’t realize how good he was. The main thing about Jerry is that he’s funny from the inside out.”

He’s survived by his wife and 2 children. Jerry was 86.
