Rest in Peace, Peter Falk

Legendary "Columbo" star Peter Falk has died at the age of 83.

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.

I hope there was some money left for the family after the lawyers bills.

I loved Columbo. Falk gave that character a classic standing. Good for him he used his physical disability as a positive motivation to pursue his dearms. Sad that the last years of his life was not what he had wanted or planned for dragged through the courts, shameful and a disgrace. Now I pray he can rest in peace.
