Ron Leavitt dies at 60

LOS ANGELES—Ron Leavitt, who co-created the sitcom “Married With Children,” died Sunday. He was 60.

Leavitt died of lung cancer at his home in Los Angeles, said his publicist Larry Winokur.

Leavitt was best known for teaming up with Michael G. Moye to create “Married With Children,” a sitcom about the luckless shoe salesman Al Bundy and his dysfunctional family.

“Married With Children” ran on the Fox network from 1987 to 1997 and became the network’s second-longest running sitcom behind “The Simpsons.”

Leavitt served as executive producer of the show and helped write nearly 150 episodes.

“He created that show to make people laugh and show life isn’t perfect,” said the model and actress Jessica Hahn, with whom he had a relationship. “I know he’s going to make God laugh, but Jesus I miss him.”

A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Leavitt broke into television in the 1970s writing episodes of “Busting Loose,” “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley” and “The Bad News Bears.” In the 1980s, Leavitt had a stint as a producer of “The Jeffersons.”

Leavitt is survived by two children, Matt and Samantha. The family plans a private service.

  4. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers? I’d
    definitely appreciate it.
