This is terrible news for New Years day. And everyday really.
James Avery, known to me as Uncle Phil, passed away in an LA Hospital last night at the age of 65. Too young.
Avery had recently undergone surgery for an undisclosed illness and took a turn for the worse late yesterday.
And we’re told his wife, Barbara, had been at his bedside but left for a short period of time to get something to eat. When she came back, she learned he had just died.
UGH! That is the worst. So far that is all the details TMZ has, but that is enough for me. That really sucks.
