Nielsen was best known for his roles in "Airplane" and the "Naked Gun" series. His "Airplane" co-star, Barbara Billingsley, passed away last month.

Ted Striker: Surely you can't be serious.
Rumack: I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

This is a headline I wasn't looking forward to seeing. He's one of the few actors who I really loved. I grew up watching his films. It's so sad that he's gone.

At least he was able to say goodbye and have his family at his side when he passed.

Thanks for the laughs, thanks for the memories. You will be sorely missed. R.I.P. Leslie.

I sure picked a bad day to quit cocaine. I love a serious actor who doesn't take himself seriously. Anyone who can laugh at himself is good in my book. He was a great serious and comedic actor who will be missed.
