Dave Madden  -- who played "The Partridge Family's" aggravated band manager on the 1970s TV show -- has died after a long illness at age 82 ... TMZ has learned.

Madden played Reuben Kincaid on the show ... who was often bedeviled by the antics of the Partridge kids, particularly Danny, played by Danny Bonaduce.

Dave's former agent tells TMZ ... he died of congestive heart and kidney failure early this morning.

Madden also appeared on another popular 70s TV show, "Laugh-In" and was the author of a couple books, including a book of memoirs published in 2007.

We're told Madden died in Florida ... where he lived with his wife.

At least all three of these people had reached a respectable old age. Congrats, Dave.

Sad day. The last female mushkins dies, Ruben dies and my favorite, The Professor from Gilligans Island died. Grew up on these shows, we were lucky to have them! Shows today are crap, it's wonderful they show the repeats of these now days.
