“Our father was a uniquely talented force of nature, both as an artist and a man,” they said in a statement. “A loving husband, father, grand and great grandfather, he was adored and will be deeply missed.”

Through Twitter earlier that morning, Jason Alexander informed followers of the “The Kominsky Method” alum’s passing.

“#ripAlanArkin,” the comedian, 63, wrote. “Such a wonderful, original voice for comedy. And on the few occasions I was in his presence, a kind and generous soul.”

The star of “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter” made news in November 2015 when he was hospitalized following a minor stroke. He was discharged the following day.

He is survived by wife Suzanne Newlande, whom he wed in 1996, and his three sons.
