(CNN) -- Actor James Avery, who played the beloved Uncle Phil on the hit 1990s sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," died Tuesday, his publicist confirmed. He was 65.

 

His "Fresh Prince" co-star Alfonso Ribeiro tweeted news of Avery's passing.

"I'm deeply saddened to say that James Avery has passed away," Riberio tweeted. "He was a second father to me. I will miss him greatly.

 

A classically trained actor and poet, Avery grew up in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where he was raised by a single mother. He served in the Navy during the Vietnam War and first appeared onscreen as a dancer in an uncredited role in the 1980 film "The Blues Brothers."

So many great and funny moments on the greatest sitcom of all time. 

 

I remember all the confrontations between him and Will; the "Daddy, can I have $200" moments between him and Hilary; how he was overprotective of Ashley, supportive of Carlton, how he got in the doghouse with Vivian, how he wanted to kill Jeffrey sometimes, how often he threw Jazz out of the house.

James Avery will be miss, he was larger than life. I would like to thank him for the memories and lesson he has taught me from the sitcom.  Gone but never Forgotten!

No man come on! Not Uncle Phil =[  RIP James Avery You will be miss. My condolences, my prayers are with his family and loved ones. Phil had me dying tho and those serious moments he used to have with Will really touched me yo. Like when Will's father came and hanged out with him for a couple days and promised he'll take him with him and Uncle Phil was trying to tell him that he would get hurt and he did. Those scenes make you never wanna be that kind of father to your child when you have one and glad my father was in my life too. Will & Geoffreys fat jokes on him used to have me dying and still do.  Always throwing Jazz out the house, Hilary always asking Phil for something and be over protective with ashley, and supportive of Carlton and even picking at him too. Always getting in trouble with Vivian. Nothing like Prince of Bel Air man.

Not a good way to start the year off.

Been watching Fresh Prince all afternoon, no sitcom has or will ever come close to that show for me. Hands down.

Rest in peace, "Uncle Phil".

RIP. I hope he lived a wonderful life, 65 seems a little young. Uncle Phil was a character that was one in its own. Mr. Avery shall greatly be missed.

Yes, it will take the news about 24 hours to start reporting everything accurately. 68 seems a little young.

Smh. How [expletive]in' disrespectful man. There are numerous examples obviously of the media & sources messing up on reporting important facts such as that Texas explosion a while back when it was first reported on several outlets that as many as 65 were dead or something of the like and then later it turned out it was nowhere close. Just so disgusting. When mistakes like those are made, people need to be held seriously accountable and potentially even fired. That [expletive] is absurd.

I'm not trying to turn this into a political thread, but let's remember, news organizations are for-profit companies. Most of them want to be the first to break a story, rather than report an in-depth, accurate story.
