97 years old and still going strong!
During the recent rain onslaughts, he had a minor single-vehicle driving accident. He suffered minor injuries to his face, was alert and cogent with first responders, and declined medical transport at that time.

His wife is 46 years younger, the cradle-robber!

Be careful. You don't want to give Dave a heart attack.

Actually, I was hoping to inspire him. Van Dyke is a model for us all. All those years working with Mary Tyler Moore, wow!

He not only successfully dealt with his own alcoholism, but applied that experience to a surprisingly good, and dramatically powerful, tragic portrayal in the TV ("Monday Night") Movie, "The Morning After." It ends with his character slumping down against a graffitied concrete wall, opening up a paper bag, and sucking down a bottle of screwtop wine, the antithesis of "Days of Wine and Roses" and "The Lost Weekend." Watch it if you can.

In many ways, his work was an incubator for MTMoore

His wife released a music video last year, singing and dancing with a 96 year old dick van dyke full of vim and vigor. Dancing like a man decades younger, and even his voice is strong

I thought he was dead but maybe I got him mixed up with Andy
Griffith.

I nominate Dick Van Dyke for church President. He's almost old enough for the job.

Dick Van Dyke is the greatest song-and-dance man ever.

Watch Mary Poppins. Especially 'step in time'.
