Research is the key in The Game Of All Games (http://www.stiffs.com/enter/), and information is precious. Therefore, DO NOT blurt out anything you may have heard about a celebrity's health, or even the fact that a famous person is really old, UNLESS that info has appeared on stiffs.com's SickTicker, OR, you have seen or heard it yourself on CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox, AND the Drudge Report. When in doubt, shut the fuck up.

Rance Howard, actor and father of Ron Howard, dies at 89, family says

(CNN)Longtime film and television actor Rance Howard, father of director Ron Howard, has died, according to a Saturday tweet from Ron Howard's verified account.

"Clint & I have been blessed to be Rance Howard's sons. Today he passed at 89. He stood especially tall 4 his ability to balance ambition w/great personal integrity. A depression-era farm boy, his passion for acting changed the course of our family history. We love & miss U Dad," Ron Howard tweeted.

Details of the death were not immediately available.
Rance Howard was born Harold Engle Beckenholdt on November 17, 1928, in Oklahoma, according to the Internet Movie Database.

He performed in a touring children's theater as a child and, as an adult, toured with Henry Fonda in the stage presentation of "Mister Roberts," according to the Turner Classic Movies archives.

He moved to New York and was cast with son Ron Howard in "The Journey," the TCM archives said. He soon found work in television and won roles in shows such as "Bat Masterson," "Gunsmoke" and "The Waltons." He had a regular role on "Gentle Ben," along with his younger son, Clint Howard.

Rance Howard had appeared in numerous films, starting with "Frontier Woman" in 1956 and ending with "Nebraska" in 2013. He appeared in six movies nominated for best-picture Oscars: "The Music Man," "Chinatown," "Apollo 13," "A Beautiful Mind," "Frost/Nixon" and "Nebraska," according to the IMDb.

"A Beautiful Mind," directed by Ron Howard, won the award in 2001. Rance Howard played a "white haired patient," IMDb said.

Ron Howard, who played Opie Taylor on the "Andy of Mayberry" television show as a child, went on to become a director. Along with "A Beautiful Mind," Ron Howard gave his father roles in many of his movies, such as "Splash," "Cocoon," "The Paper," "Apollo 13," "Frost/Nixon" and "Angels and Demons."

Accolades flowed onto social media.

Russell Crowe, who had the lead role in "A Beautiful Mind," tweeted: "Hey @RealRonHoward my deepest condolences . He was a fine man indeed was Rance Howard . Fine man, fine actor. Being in his company was always a pleasure."

Actor and comedian Josh Gad tweeted: "Today we lost one of the greats: #RanceHoward, who I was proud to call a personal friend. When I first arrived in LA , he opened his home to me & made me feel like family. He was a legend, both as a person & performer. @BryceDHoward & @RealRonHoward sending lots of love."
