Sad to read about this. I watched all of the original airings of "Frasier," and then watched the series a second time on DVD with my mom. He was one of those understated actors and had a very distinct voice.

When the series was in its original run, I read that John was born in England and had actually helped Jane Leeves with her Manchester accent, as that's where he had grown up.

RIP, Marty!

I didn't realize he was that young, 6 years younger than me when he started the role. Wow.

One of my favorite shows. He was a big part of the why.

He was younger than I thought.

77 minus about 24 years since Frasier started puts him about 53. Dang, I am 51 1/2. I am now the age of crochety old guys on TV. This makes me feel really old.

He was a perfect 'father' for those Crane boys.

He is remembered by many friends:

John Mahoney's famous co-stars share sweet remembrances: John Cusack, Cameron Crowe, Jane Leeves, and others
