We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Regis Philbin, who was part of the ABC family for decades. He was a true class act who entertained millions with his great sense of humor and charm every day.

Here’s the doll my made made by hand for Regis Philbin. Regis wrote to my mom: “Dear Ellie, of course, I remember meeting all the Anvils. It was a great day and am still a fan of Jim’s. Love it when he laughs so evil. Thanks for my doll. You’re a doll for making it. -Regis ❤️ pic.twitter.com/l4mBSMnYwk
God bless Regis Philbin! Always nice, always up and a naturally very funny guy. At the premiere of “A League of their Own”, we sat together at the after- party. He yelled, “Look, Jon, there’s Robert De Niro! Don’t look, you’re a big star now! I’ll look for you!” Hilarious!
We're remembering the life of our beloved #RegisPhilbin who passed away over the weekend. We have the tributes continuing to pour in for the TV legend who graced our screens for six decades next on @GMA
