Actor Al Molinaro, aka Big Al Delvecchio from "Happy Days," died Friday at Verdugo Hills Hospital in Glendale, California. He was 96.

The actor's son, Michael Molinaro, said his father suffered from complications of a gallstone ailment, according to TMZ. The gallbladder reportedly wasn't removed due to Molinaro's age, CNN reported.

During his acting career, Molinaro appeared in a variety of projects, including "The Odd Couple" and "The Family Man," but the Kenosha, Wisconsin, native is perhaps best known as the affable cook at the "Happy Days" hangout spot, Arnold's. He also played the role on the spinoff show "Joanie Loves Chachi."

Molinaro is survived by his wife and son. We'll miss you, Al.
