He was 71. Such a great talent that was, in my eyes, the glue of "Raymond" ... may he rest peacefully. Promote this thread!

I never watched Raymond, but he had been on a couple episodes of Mind of Mencia recently as well. RIP March 22, 2004 - Finally the WotD!

I loved him in "Young Frankenstein", and was fantastic in "Yellowbeard" (Mr. Moon) as well. He was a fine actor and a funny man. He will be missed.

"Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" was my favorite comedy episode of "The x-Files." Boyle's morbidly depressed delivery and moments of feigned enthusiasm were great. The capper was his vision of himself lying in bed with Scully with tears of gratitude running down his cheeks, which she thought was a missed prediction when he made it. The payoff made for a great finale!
