Peter Falk, star of NBC’s Columbo, died peacefully in his Beverly Hills home on Thursday evening, June 23, 2011.  Peter Falk was 83 and reported to have suffered from Alzheimer’s and dementia in his final years.

The Columbo series made Peter Falk a household name.  The character he was so closely identified with playing (Lieutenant Columbo) dressed like a slob, was dumb like a fox and had annoying characteristics.  Yet Lieutenant Columbo always got his man, much to everyone’s surprise.

Falk is survived by his wife and two daughters.
