Gavin MacLeod, the star of two TV shows of the ’70s — The Love Boat and The Mary Tyler Moore Show — has died, ABC News has confirmed.  He was 90.

MacLeod’s nephew Mark See confirmed MacLeod’s passing, saying, “He was full of life until the end.”

Born Allan George See, MacLeod appeared in films like Operation Petticoat, I Want to Live and Pork Chop Hill, as well as numerous TV series, before landing the part of Happy Haines on the ABC comedy McHale’s Navy.  He left that show after two years and he continued his film and TV career.  He guest-starred on The Dick Van Dyke Show in 1961, marking the first time he’d work with Mary Tyler Moore.

His breakout role was playing newswriter Murray Slaughter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show: During the show’s 1970-1977 run, he appeared in every single episode and earned two Golden Globe nominations.

MacLeod’s MTM co-star Ed Asner, who played his boss Lou Grant, tweeted, “My heart is broken. Gavin was my brother, my partner in crime (and food) and my comic conspirator. I will see you in a bit Gavin. Tell the gang I will see them in a bit.”

Asner then added, referring to the fact that he and MTM co-star Betty White are the only surviving members of the MTM cast, “Betty! It’s just you and me now.

When Mary Tyler Moore ended, MacLeod immediately segued into starring on ABC’s The Love Boat as the soon-to-be iconic Captain Merrill Stubing.  The romantic comedy-drama ran for 10 years and earned MacLeod three Golden Globe nominations.  He became the spokesman for Princess Cruises, a role he continued in after the show went off the air.

After The Love Boat, MacLeod appeared onstage and in musicals. He also guest-starred on shows like The King of Queens, JAG, Touched by an Angel, That ’70s Show and HBO’s Oz.

He and his second wife, Patti Kendig, became Evangelical Christians and for 17 years, they were hosts on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. In his 1987 book Back on Course, MacLeod credited the religion for reuniting him and Kendig; the couple had divorced in 1982 but remarried in 1985.

In 2013, MacLeod published his memoir, This Is Your Captain Speaking: My Fantastic Voyage Through Hollywood, Faith & Life.

According to Variety, MacLeod is survived by Kendig and four children from his first marriage to Joan Devore.

2024 Watch: Trump super PAC holding top-dollar fundraiser this week

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Former President Donald Trump’s super PAC is hosting its largest fundraiser to date this week.

The Make America Great Again, Again super PAC event on Thursday, Dec. 2, will be held at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Sources in Trump world tell Fox News to expect some of the biggest GOP donors from across the country to attend the function.

The super PAC is steered by former Florida state Attorney General Pam Biondi, who defended the former president at his first Senate impeachment trial. But Trump’s adding to the group’s leadership. Ric Grenell and Matt Whitaker, who served as acting national intelligence director and acting attorney general during the Trump administration, respectively, are joining the super PAC’s board of directors.

2024 WATCH: PENCE HEADED NEXT MONTH TO FIRST PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY STATE

The beefing up of the former president’s super PAC follows his move to expand his staff at his Save America political action committee, which recently brought on board longtime Trump aide Lynne Patton in a political coalitions building role.

Thanks in part to an aggressive push of text messages, emails, campaign style events and even ads, Trump’s been a fundraising juggernaut this year. His three main fundraising operations, which include Save America, reported over $100 million cash on hand as of the end of July, which was the most recent filing period for the groups.

The brisk fundraising and the expansion of his political operations come as Trump continues to play a kingmaker’s role in GOP politics heading into the 2022 midterm elections and repeatedly flirts with making another White House run in 2024.

Former president polls Trump-Biden 2024 showdown

For the first time, Trump’s political operation commissioned a poll in a hypothetical 2024 matchup between the former president and President Biden.

The survey was conducted in five key battleground states where Biden edged Trump in last year’s election to win the White House. It suggests Trump leading Biden by single digits in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania and by double digits in Michigan and Wisconsin.

TRUMP’S POLLSTER SAYS THE GOP’S COMPRISED OF THESE ‘FIVE TRIBES’

The survey was conducted by veteran Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio, who polled for Trump’s 2016 presidential election victory and his 2020 reelection defeat. Besides the top line numbers in the horse race, Fabrizio pointed to the “wide chasm that currently exists” between Trump’s recalled job approval and Biden’s currently job approval. He told Fox News Trump’s advantage “is staggering given we are only 10 months into Biden’s presidency.”

The poll, which appears to be another sign that Trump’s gearing up for another presidential bid, was first reported by Politico.

Biden’s 2024 ‘intention’

In the wake of plenty of speculation the past month on whether President Biden will run for reelection in 2024, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters last week that “that’s his intention.”

Psaki’s comments seemed to confirm reports that the president has been telling advisers and staff that he plans to run for a second four-year term steering the country.

Biden, who turned 79 last weekend, made history last November when he became the oldest person ever elected president. If he campaigns for reelection in 2024 and wins, Biden would be 82 at his second inauguration and 86 at the end of his second term.

Asked in March at the first formal news conference of his presidency about his 2024 plans, Biden said, “My answer is yes. I plan on running for reelection. That’s my expectation.”

And Democratic sources tell Fox News the president repeated that message during a virtual fundraiser earlier this month.

A day ahead of his birthday, the president told reporters, “I feel great,” after undergoing the first of his annual physical exams at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

“Nothing has changed. We’re in good shape,” Biden said.

Bangalore: Bodies of two Covid-19 victims discovered in ESI hospital a year after death

Published

Bodies of two Covid-19 victims were located a year after their deaths in the mortuary of the ESI hospital in Bengaluru.

Rajajinagar police said the victims have been identified as Durga and Muniraju.

A senior police officer said the bodies were kept in the cold storage of the mortuary a year ago and a new mortuary building had started functioning in the meantime. “On Saturday, when the housekeeping staff went to clean the old mortuary, they sensed a foul smell and later discovered these two bodies,” he said.

The police have shifted the bodies to the Victoria hospital for autopsy and are trying to trace the family members of the deceased.

The police officer said the hospital staff told them that the family members of many victims hesitated in collecting the bodies. “These two bodies remained in the freezer as the hospital staff got busy dealing with too many Covid-19 cases in successive months,” the officer added.
He said the family members of the deceased will be traced by Monday and the bodies will be cremated after receiving their permission. “The two deaths might have occurred in October last year but we are awaiting confirmation from the hospital,” the officer said.
