So sad. Conrad Bain, who played the father on ‘Diff’rent Strokes,’ died on Jan. 14 surrounded by his family in Livermore, CA.

Diff’rent Strokes and Maude star Conrad Bain died on Jan. 14. Further details about Conrad’s death have reportedly not yet been determined.

“He was an amazing person. He was a lot like Mr. Drummond, but much more interesting in real life. He was an amazing father,” Conrad’s daughter Jennifer told TMZ, comparing her father to his Diff’rent Strokes character Philip Drummond.

Conrad starred opposite Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges on the iconic 80s series, which made ”What’chu talkin‘ ‘bout, Willis?” a household phrase.

The actor, who would have turned 90 on Feb. 4, last made his mark in television on the series Unforgettable — he starred in one episode in 2011. Before that, it was an appearance on an episode of The French Prince of Bel-Air in 1996.
