Daily News of Los Angeles (CA) - May 26, 1990

TAYBACK, CO-STAR OF 'ALICE'

Vic Tayback, the actor best known as the gruff diner owner and cook Mel Sharples in the television comedy "Alice," died Friday May 25, 1990 of a heart attack in his Glendale home, officials said.

Tayback, 60, had a history of heart trouble and underwent triple bypass surgery in 1983.


"Tayback's wife, Sheila, (told police) he had gotten out of bed, walked a few feet and fell to the floor," said Glendale police spokesman Chris Loop. Tayback was in full cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived at 1:08 a.m.


He was pronounced dead at 1:56 a.m. at Glendale Adventist Medical Center.


Tayback was the only cast member of the 1975 film "Alice Doesn't Live Here Any More" to star in the television situation-comedy "Alice," which was based on the film. Tayback played Mel, whose penny-pinching and poor cooking were a running joke on the show, which ran from 1976 to 1985.

"I'm just devastated. I loved Vic very dearly and my heart goes out to Sheila and Chris," said actress Polly Holliday, who co-starred with Tayback as the wise-cracking waitress Flo on "Alice."

Tayback played supporting roles in a number of other films, including ''Papillon," "Bullitt" and "The Choirboys." His television movie credits include "They Call It Murder" (1971), "The Night the City Screamed" (1980), "The Jesse Owens Story" (1984) and "The Three Kings" (1987).


In the 1960s, he co-founded the Silver Lake-based Company of Angels theater group with Sally Kellerman and Richard Chamberlain. He was a member of the Actor's Studio for 20 years.


After the "Alice" series ended in 1985, Tayback starred in such plays as "12 Angry Men," "Death of a Salesman" and "Brighton Beach Memoirs."


As recently as May 12, he played a Lebanese immigrant in S.K. Hershewe's comedy "An Oasis in Manhattan" at the Venture Theatre in Burbank.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y. of Syrian parents, Tayback attended Glendale Community College and the Frederick A. Speare School of Radio and TV Broadcasting. Before turning to acting full time, he was a bank teller and a cab driver.

"Everybody loved him," said Fred Amsel, Tayback's agent and friend of 20 years. "He was a first-class guy. He was a very compassionate man. He always had his hand out to help other people, and he always spoke his mind."


Tayback is survived by his wife, Sheila; son Christopher; mother Helen; sister Emily, and brother Joe.

Funeral services are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Incarnation Church, 1001 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale. Burial will be Wednesday at Forest Lawn Memorial-Park, Hollywood Hills.

Richard J. "Rick" Angel, BHS 1966

Richard J. Angel, BHS 1966


BANGOR, MAINE - Richard J. Angel, 63, died March 10, 2012, at a Bangor hospital after a long illness. He was born in 1948, in Wheeling, W.Va., son of Teodor H. and Athena (Pappas) Angel. Rick spent his early childhood in Michigan, and his teen and high school years in Burbank, Calif., where he developed into a spectacular scholar.

Rick was a true "Renaissance man," displaying a voracious curiosity in all subjects, while also competing in varsity tennis and being voted "best dancer" by his high school classmates. After graduating from Burbank High School with high scholastic honors and the title of "most likely to succeed," Rick entered Columbia University on the President's Scholarship. There, he delved deeply into developmental psychology and philosophy. He continued his education at Columbia, receiving his Bachelor of Arts, Masters of Arts, Masters of Philosophy and Doctorate from the University.

Rick loved the culture and excitement of New York City and lived there for 18 years. Even after moving to Maine, his love of the city could be recognized by the New York Yankees cap that he could be seen to proudly sport. He continued his scholarly pursuits with a Post-Doctoral NIS Fellowship at Harvard Unversity, carrying on his academic research, teaching, and writing in epistemology and the philosophy of science. He moved to California in the 1980s to teach in the California State University system. He returned to Harvard to complete two years as a GSAS Visiting Fellow to conclude his scholarly work.

In his spare time, Rick began his first novel, which was published in 2001. A second novel followed several years later. Despite his academic interests and achievements, Rick's strongest interest was in his fellow human beings. An intuitive observer and a great conversationalist, Rick enjoyed nothing more than spending time with friends discussing every subject under the sun. He was unstinting in offering support when others were in need. Rick also loved meeting new people and was adept at putting them at ease.


A highlight of Rick's life was Fountain Books, Eastport, where he ran the old-fashioned soda fountain and bookstore. He could be found behind the fountain dispensing generous ice cream cones and good humor. Rick was proud of his Macedonian and Greek heritage and enjoyed sharing Greek-American culture and especially food! - with others. His greatest joy was in seeing others happy and well fed. Since moving to Bangor, Rick has been a member of St. George Greek Orthodox Church. He appreciated the opportunity to worship in the Orthodox tradition in which he had been raised and to be a part of such a wonderful community.

His family wishes to thank the Bangor Fire Department and emergency medical technicians for their many appearances and assistance, and to all those who gave him such care and concern during his illness. Rick is survived by his loving and beloved wife, Ellen; son, Kobe; mother, Athena Pappas; brother, Matt Angel; sister, Naomi Angel; and sister, Maria Tsilimidos. He was predeceased by his father, Teodor H. Angel.


Family and friends may visit 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, at Kiley & Foley Funeral Service, 299 Union St., Bangor, where a Trisagion service will begin 7:30 p.m. A funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 14, at St. George Greek Orthodox Church, Sanford Street, Bangor, with the Rev. Adam Metropoulos, presbyter, presiding. Burial will be at Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor.

Glenn was a beloved son, brother, uncle and a graduate of Burbank High School ’73, UCLA 78, B.A in History, Loyola Law School ’82 J.D., Cum Laude. As a young person he achieved the honor of Eagle Scout and enjoyed playing the trumpet in the Burbank High School marching band.

His passion was UCLA athletics which inspired him to create the PowderKegBlue.com website – that contains many of his photos of UCLA athletics. He noted that the heartbeat of the site was to give a perspective of a Bruin athletic event as seen by a UCLA fan from pre-game, game and post-game activities.

He is survived by his parents, Martha & Glenn Brown, sisters Carol Chapman and Wendy Day-Brown, nieces Marissa & Kia Chapman and nephew Tyler Day Dykhuizen. Glenn was preceded in death by his niece Hillary Chapman and brother-in-law Charles Chapman.

School and District personnel and support staff are available in the Library at BHS for students and staff who would like to reflect, grieve, and discuss their feelings about Matthew.
