Allan Melvin of 'Brady Bunch' has died

Allan Melvin, a character actor best known for playing Sam the Butcher on “The Brady Bunch,” has died. He was 84.

Melvin died of cancer Thursday at his home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles, said Amalia Melvin, his wife of 64 years.

The jowly, jovial Melvin spent decades playing a series of sidekicks, second bananas and lovable lugs, including Archie Bunker's friend Barney Hefner on “All in the Family,” and Sgt. Bilko's right-hand man Cpl. Henshaw on the “Phil Silvers Show.”

But his place in pop culture will be fixed as butcher and bowler Sam Franklin, the love interest of Brady family maid Alice Nelson, who was played by Ann B. Davis. Melvin played the role from 1970 to 1973.

Allan Melvin dies! Who? Oh you know him

Allan Melvin has passed away at 84. At first I was like, who is Allan Melvin? Then I saw his picture. Who could grow up watching TV and NOT know his face. He is most famous as Sam the Butcher on The Brady Bunch."


He was on EVERYTHING back in the 50/60/70s. He even played different people on the same shows.
The Andy Griffith Show :
