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.

Wow, I had just researched him up a few days ago to see if he was still around! For some odd reason, I was reading about Danny Bonaduce and saw how kind Dave had always been to him.
R.I.P Mr. Madden

He was perfectly cast in The Partridge Family. Just watched an old interview with him and a few PF episodes the other day after reading of David Cassidy's DUI arrest.
