NEW YORK (AP) — The
who played the child-hating agent on the hit 1970s sitcom "The Partridge Family" has died in Florida. Dave Madden was 82.
His niece Mary Frances Miller says he died Thursday at a hospice center near his home in the Jacksonville area.
Madden was best known for his role as Reuben Kinkaid, who managed the family band and clashed with the precocious pre-teen bassist played by Danny Bonaduce (bahn-uh-DOO'-chee).
Before "The Partridge Family," Madden was part of the comedy ensemble on the "Laugh-In" variety series. He later had a recurring role as a customer at Mel's Diner on the long-running sitcom "Alice."
Madden was born in Ontario, Canada, and grew up in Terre Haute, Ind.
He began show business as a nightclub comic and landed his first acting job on the short-lived sitcom "Camp Runamuck" in the mid-1960s.
