Uncle Frank from "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Has Died
UNCLE FRANK from "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" died yesterday morning. He was 77. Frank was Jimmy's real-life uncle, and Jimmy invited him to be a part of the show when it started back in 2003. He was Jimmy's "security guard" sidekick. Frank was a veteran of the Korean War . . . and also served 20 years as a police officer in New York, and as a security guard at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
Jimmy Tweeted, quote, "Thank you for your kind words about a very kind man, my Uncle Frank, who passed away this morning." (--Here's a video of Uncle Frank in a bit where he's the show's "chief meteorologist.)
