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.

I cannot believe it!! We has just watched his movie this Thanksgiving weekend - Naked Gun 2 1/2 and wondered what projects he was up to lately. I cannot believe you can contract pneumonia in Fort Lauderdale. Too bad. I pray he is resting in peace and his family is comforted for their loss.

He was wonderful! I was working as a waiter back in 1991 in San Francisco when he came into the restaurant, and I went to shake his hand,and he had one of those "hand held" shocking devices ready to go! Always looking for a laugh! I will miss his work and am very saddened by the news. Surely, he will be missed!

OMG! I loved the when he was on the episode of the Golden Girls and he played Blanche's Uncle and then wound up marrying Dorthy...which both Rue McClanhan and Bea Authur have both passed away as well.

He will be missed along with the other celebs lost in the past couple years.
