You remember the rich funny strict uncle that Will Smith stayed with, when he played the hit drama series Fresh Prince of Bell air?!?...
He died very recently in an L.A hospital after an undisclosed illness.
According to E!;
Nobody laid down the law like Uncle Phil when Will got out of hand.
James Avery, best known for playing Will Smith's no-nonsense rich uncle on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, has died. He was 65.
"I'm deeply saddened to say that James Avery has passed away," Alfonso Ribeiro, who played preppy son Carlton on the 1990s-era hit, tweeted this morning. "He was a second father to me. I will miss him greatly."
The news was first broken by TMZ, which reports that Avery died last night at a Los Angeles hospital and had recently undergone surgery for an undisclosed condition.
May his soul rest in peace, AMEN.
