(CNN) -- Alex Karras, the burly defensive lineman turned actor in the ABC sitcom "Webster," died Wednesday surrounded by his family in their Los Angeles home following a hard-fought battle with kidney disease, heart disease, dementia and stomach cancer, according to a family spokesman.
He was 77.
"Alex was known to family and friends as a gentle, loving, generous man who loved gardening and preparing Greek and Italian feasts," his family said in a written statement.
The Gary, Indiana, native was an All-American at the University of Iowa who was thrust into professional football in 1958 with a first-round draft pick by the Detroit Lions, where he played until 1971.



RIP Mongo

I totally forgot that Karras was Mongo.

I'll send a "candygram for Mongo" up to heaven.

Battling all of that until you are 77 is pretty woah, tough guy.

RIP

"Me don't know ..... Mongo just pawn in game of life."

That's terrible news. He always seemed like a guy you could hang with and drink a beer.
