Falk "died peacefully at his Beverly Hills home in the evening of June 23, 2011," a rep tells KTLA.
The actor had been suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease, according to his adopted daughter, Catherine Falk.
In 2009, a judge established a conservatorship for the ailing actor after a court battle between Catherine and Falk's wife of 34 years, actress Shera Danese Falk. His wife was appointed conservator.
