Irish Actor Gavan O’Herlihy is dead – Cause of death

Very sad news. Per Bronson’s Loose author Paul Talbot, actor Gavan O’Herlihy — known to Cannon fans as Death Wish 3’s villainous Fraker — passed away last month. He also appeared in Willow, Never Say Never Again, Superman III, and of course, Happy Days. RIP.

Irish veteran actor Gavan O’Herlihy has passed away at the age of 70. The son of the Dublin-born actor and Oscar nominee Dan O’Herlihy has played a variety of roles during his five-year career. This week’s “Echoes of Ireland” print edition will have more comprehensive coverage.

Most recall Gavan O’Herlihy as Chuck Cunnigham, the family member who suddenly disappeared on Happy Days. But I recall his completely whacked-out villain in Death Wish 3 with Charles Bronson. Gavan has reportedly passed away at the age of 70. RIP.

Sad news my pallys. I’m told our beloved gang leader Gavan O’Herlihy aka Fraker has passed away. Bronson historian and author Paul Talbot broke the news on facebook. I haven’t seen much about it yet other than this article. More to come.
