'Cocoon' actor Wilford Brimley, who appeared in Quaker Oats commercials, dies at 85



(CNN)Wilford Brimley, the mustachioed actor who appeared on the big screen, Television shows and advertisements of Quaker Oats, has died. He was 85 years old.
Brimley died on Saturday while being hospitalized in St. George, Utah, CNN was told by its producer Lynda Bensky. He was at the ICU where he sought medical issues treatment and was on dialysis.

"Wilford Brimley was a guy you would believe. He said what  he said and he said what he was doing," said Bensky. "He had a rough shell and a soft core. I 'm sorry I won't be able to hear the great tales of my buddy any more. He was one of a kind."

Its film roles date back to the 1970s and include "Cocoon," "The Human" and "The Truth." He has appeared in many TV series, including NBC's "Our House" as a gruff widower who demands its daughter-in - law and her children to stay with him.

He has starred in advertisements for the American Diabetes Association for Quaker Oats, where
he utilized his raspy baritone to remind viewers to test their blood sugar regularly. He received a new generation of followers
over the years — several raised decades after his film performances — attracted to images paying homage to his mustache.

"So many amazing performances RIP Wilford Brimley, but I'll never forget to see him sing this incredibly sensitive 'It's Not Simple Being Black,'" comedian Stephen Colbert tweeted.

Brimley 's wife Beverly and three sons survive.
