WASHINGTON (AP) — Robert Prosky, a character actor with hundreds of credits on stage and screen including "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Hill Street Blues," has died in a Washington hospital. He was 77.

His oldest son, Stefan Prosky, said the actor died Monday night of complications from a heart procedure.

"He went gracefully last night, not in pain," Stefan Prosky said Tuesday. "Everybody knows him as a fairly famous actor. My brothers and I know him as a marvelous father."

Prosky appeared in more than 200 plays on Broadway and with Arena Stage, a regional theater company in Washington. He appeared in 38 films and numerous television shows.

A native of Philadelphia, Prosky studied economics at Temple University and served in the U.S. Air Force.

On Broadway, Prosky's credits included "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "A View from the Bridge." He also completed a long run in Michael Frayn's play "Democracy."

More recently, Prosky appeared with two of his sons in Arthur Miller's play, "The Price," in Philadelphia. He planned to continue in a San Diego production of "The Price" this winter, Stefan Prosky said.

In the 1980s, Prosky spent three years on the NBC television series "Hill Street Blues" as a police sergeant. He later appeared as a priest on trial for murder in ABC's legal drama, "The Practice."

In "Mrs. Doubtfire," Prosky played the TV station owner who hired Robin Williams, who dressed as a nanny. His other film credits include "Dead Man Walking" and "The Natural."

Prosky spent most of his life in Washington and raised his three sons in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Nearby Arena Stage was close to his heart. He spent 22 years affiliated with the theater and a small company of players, appearing in more than 120 plays.

"Arena Stage is where I learned to be an actor," Prosky told The Associated Press in 2006.

Arena co-founder Zelda Fichandler said she has lost a part of her family.

"I don't know of another American actor who has played in so many plays in so many styles in so many places in so many roles, and played them all to the hilt," she said in a statement.

Prosky is survived by his wife, Ida Prosky, and three sons, Stefan Prosky of Washington, John Prosky of North Hollywood, Calif., and Andrew Prosky of New York. Funeral arrangements were incomplete.

Instead of flowers, the family is asking for donations to The Actors Fund or for people to "just go see a play," Stefan Prosky said.

Blessings! May the Lord's Hand Reach Out to Grasp Yours, and Keep You In His Glory!
Thank you so much, Mr. Prosky, for your beautifully inspirational role as the priest in a movie called The Green Journey. There was nobody who could have visited this role with the personal warmth and crustiness that you brought to it. Your rendition gave me comfort and laughter, and a sense that there is no end in the transformations that a little religion can bring to our hearts! Bravo, and also Thank You, Priviyet! Blessing upon your home in Heaven, and to those whose hearts you haven't yet grabbed!

He fit so well in a script that you couldn't tell it from real. A marvelous talent and always such a pleasure to see on the screen. The Movies he could have made we can only guess how wonderful he would have been. Seemed like someone to just sit and have coffee with. God Bless him for trying to have heart surgery that worked. I will miss his smile most of and cheerful voice. All the best to family and friends.

For Robert...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

Bob and I met at the Abbey Theatre in Manayunk where we both cut our theatrical teeth. I worked with him in a few plays--he directed me in "Bell.Book and Candle"--we even were in competition in an early 50's live TV program called "Stand by Broadway"--he won the contest and went on to work at the Bucks County Playhouse then to Arena Stage--the rest is history. Before he married we "shared" an apatment in Brooklyn--I say shared but I was really subletting the place while he worked at the Arena in Washington, D.C. He was a wonderful dancer--polka, waltz--very light on his feet He was always a gentle, sweet man in person. We would run into each other from time to time and he would catch me up on his life. He was so happy and thrilled at his ever widening circle of career experiences without a trace of the usual actor;s braggadocio. He spoke of his Moscow run as one in humble awe. As it is obvious from the many sentiments expressed here that he was indeed loved but the greatest laurel he received is when his son said he was "a wonderful father." My sincere condolences to Ida, Stefan, Andy and John. Bob was a delightful warm person who is, and will be, sorely missed.

I'm so sorry to hear of Mr. Prosky's passing. What an inspiration he and his family was to me and they never knew. Andy and John will continue the Prosky Legacy. I just took my two children to see the three of them in DC this past Spring. My children could not believe I knew the wonderful actors and wanted to meet all of you backstage. Wish the family the best, always!!! He will be missed,but we will remember him and the family in our hearts.

My thoughts & prayers go out to the Prosky family during this time. I just learned of his passing; he will be truly missed. What a great voice, what a great smile.

I attended Capitol Hill Day School with Stephan & remember going to Arena Stage to see my first play, which of course was one that Mr. Prosky starred in. Watching him perform on stage was magical.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

Safely Home

I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so solely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadow,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth -
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!



God Bless Mr. Prosky. He will be missed. My sympathies and prayers to his family.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I, too, counted Bob as a friend for over 30 years. His gift for acting was joined by the gifts of generosity and kindness.

Several years ago, he offered to meet over dinner with my godson, who at the time was acting in high school plays and thinking about acting as a career. Bob earned my everlasting gratitude by including with his encouragement and insights the caution that 90% of equity actors earn less than $10,000 per year from their craft.

On another occasion, he gave comfort when I faced a troubling medical procedure by reassuring me (accurately, and from personal experience) that it wouldn't be painful. He even phoned several days later to see how it had gone. He thought to do this in the midst of busy preparations for a theater role in NYC.

I am grateful for having known Bob and his family and will miss him very much.

We send our love and deep sympathy to Ida and to his sons, daugthers-in-law and grandchildren.

Prosky Family,


The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness of losing a loved one can seem unbearable.
God ears are toward your cries for help, He is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
May these words from God give you all a measure of comfort.


With Sympathy,
A caring Fan

Bob Prosky was my neighbor when I first moved to Washington to work at the Arena Stage. I felt honored to be a colleague and a friend.

He was not only a sensitive and talented actor, but he was always thoughtful and supportive of everyone in the company. He was a caring member of our theatre community. His sense of humor made even the toughest days bearable.

He will be missed by all who worked with him and by all of us who were always thrilled by his performances.

How sad to think that Bob is gone. He was an anchor of the resident company at the Arena, where I worked with him for four years as stage manager. So many varied roles: the Stage Manager in Our Town, the Landlord in Moon Children, Willy in Death of a Salesman, a randy Russian in The Ascent of Mount Fuji.
My favorite memory of him was on our tour to Moscow. In the third act of Our Town (with simultaneous translation) he was not happy with the response he got from the audience in a speech in which the line read "Mrs Smith", indicating how un-unique we all are. He asked one of the translators what the most common name in Russia was. When he substituted that name the next night, you could hear the whole audience gasp. That connection with the audience is what acting is all about. Bob got it, he was very special.
My condolences to Ida and the boys.

I always enjoyed seeing Robert pop up in various movies and television shows. He actually resembled my former father-in-law which wasn't a bad thing. My deepest sympathy goes to all of the Prosky family and those who loved Robert. May God rest his soul.

To Mrs. Prosky and his 3 Sons;
In some way I feel I know Robert. He was personable in his acting. I think he was one of the "cream of the crop". I am saddened that his life on this earth has come to an end. I know that Heaven will be richer but we will be poorer.
I can see he is/was a very good good person. My heart Goes out to you his wife and you , his 3 sons.
I lost my oldest Son in 2003 and I know grief well. There are no words and healing takes a journey of a lifetime, I have come to know this.
I pray that GOD will be with you every step of each day now and forever until we all meet on the other side of this earth, Heaven.
GOD hold you.

He was a wonderful actor - I still remember his performance in "Death of a Salesman" and many others at Arena Stage.
My sincere condolences.

Your father was a very good actor. One that will be missed. Hill Street Blues was one of the shows I watched all the time.
