    He was best known for his Emmy-winning work as the bigoted, blue-collar Bunker patriarch on '70s sitcom All in the Family, which was one of the highest-rated, most-debated shows ever. O'Connor reprised the role in one of its three spinoffs, Archie Bunker's Place (The Jeffersons and Maude were the others, with Maude leading to Good Times).

    O'Connor even cowrote All in the Family's title song, "Remembering You" (aka "Those Were the Days"), which he famously crooned every episode with TV wife Jean Stapleton. His famous lounge chair, from which he railed against the world, now resides in the Smithsonian.

    "If Archie owes its life to Carroll O'Connor, and it does, then Americans can be grateful to Carroll O'Connor that [he] helped them have a good serious look at themselves,"

    "The world has lost a great talent, and a wonderful man. The talent lives on every night of your life in that character. Everyone should die like that--leaving so much behind."

    And in the words of Archie Bunker..

    Rest In Peace
