Madden, 82, died Thursday (Jan. 16) after a long illness, TMZ reports.

Madden played the harried manager of the Partridge Family on the ABC series, which ran from 1970-74. Prior to that, he was a regular performer on "Laugh-In," and he followed his "Partridge" stint with a semi-regular role on "Alice" and a host of TV guest appearances.

His death came on the same day as that of another classic-sitcom star, Russell Johnson of "Gilligan's Island."
