Conrad Bain Of Diff’rent Strokes Dies At Age 89

According to TMZ reports:

Actor Conrad Bain — who famously played father figure Phillip Drummond on “Diff’rent Strokes” — has passed away. He was 89.

Bain family sources tell TMZ, Bain died Monday night at a retirement home in Livermore, CA from natural causes.

We spoke with Bain’s daughter Jennifer who tells us, “He was an amazing person. He was a lot like Mr. Drummond, but much more interesting in real life. He was an amazing father.”

Bain — who became a household name starring opposite Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges on the iconic 80s series — is survived by his three sons and one daughter. He also has a surviving twin brother Bonar Bain.

We’re sure Mr. Bain’s real family, and TV family are grieving at this time. We’ll keep them in our thoughts.
