I am Sean Cassidy, Ted's son. This is a very nice tribute, but contains some misstatements. His death was not related to his size, and he was not ill during his last years. He had a congenital heart tumor which was discovered only weeks before his death. It is unknown where his cremains were buried. After hearing that his cremains may be buried in his backyard, my sister and I searched the yard but found nothing. After his death my sister and I returned to college, and we were surprised to hear about the alleged burial. We long ago accepted that likely we will never know what became of his cremains. And to expand on the "You rang?" story it was during his audition that he both improvised the infamous line AND decided to buck the director's instruction to play the character with bent at the waist posture (hence the name Lurch) and decided to play it with perfect posture, a more refined look. ..Miss and love you, dad, every day.
-awesome, thank you for the update/corrections Sean.


on a personal note do not like famous-people-bio's - here on You Tube - with the tag "Their sad ending." Every former celeb story
is portrayed as a disaster towards the end. Meanwhile these are some of the most accomplished people on the planet (Ted Cassidy).
Ted won at everything and everywhere he went - how can that ever be translated into sad, negative, etc. Ted was Superman. Ted's
to be celebrated - studied - looked up to - honored. I know that's the intent, and that the intentions are all good. But these celebs would
cringe if they knew their stories/lives were being described as tragic or sad. Only Ted knows what his life was - and I'm certain he was proud
as his son Ted also is and rightfully-so.

Sorry for your loss.
Your Father was a great actor.
I love to watch him as Lurch in Addams Family reruns.

John Bockman

I was a pre-teen when the Addams Family was on prime time, and I tried to imitate his "You Rang?" by emptying my lungs of air and then saying those words by sucking air through the vocal chords. Isucceeded more or less, but man did that hurt!

Whocares Superstar

Sorry for your loss he was a good actor enjoyed every movie he has made.

EXECUTIVE !

The way he chose to portray Lurch was perfection.

Ryan Cole

He lived across the street from me for most of my childhood. He was a kind, sweet man who made the world a better place for everyone who knew him.

Judith Hand

Did you know his kids?
