The longtime television host died on July 24, PEOPLE confirms. "We are deeply saddened to share that our beloved Regis Philbin passed away last night of natural causes, one month shy of his 89th birthday," his family shares with PEOPLE in an exclusive statement on Saturday.

"His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him – for his warmth, his legendary sense of humor, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about. We thank his fans and admirers for their incredible support over his 60-year career and ask for privacy as we mourn his loss," the Philbin family says.

R.I.P.

He was a great entertainer. I liked his ability to make almost anything interesting.

My dad went to school with him, said he was an OK guy.

He also went to law school with Geraldine Ferraro. Not as nice words to say about her.

I first remember him as the side kick to Joey Bishop on... The Joey Bishop Show.

This is a real surprise, as I thought he'd be well into his 90s before passing.

Thank you for all the laughs, Mr. Philbin.

And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

He kept telling me to run for President. Holds the record for “most live television”, and he did it well.

Regis is in the same category as Carson. Superlative. He was on our show a million times, always the best guest we ever had, charming, lovable and could take a punch. When he retired I lost interest in television. I love him.
-David Letterman

Philbin appeared 150 time on Letterman's Late shows.

They were always great to watch together.

Regis was a consummate show biz pro and never failed to entertain. In that, he reminds me of Vin Scully.



It is what it is.

Regis was okay, only thing I can fault him for is bringing us Kathy Lee for so many years.
