“With great sadness, the family of Michael G. Hagerty announced his death yesterday in Los Angeles. A beloved character actor, his love of his hometown of Chicago and his family were the cornerstones of his life,” the statement said.
Hagerty played Everett’s father on the HBO series.
Through the years the actor amassed a long list of TV guest roles, primarily in comedies, but also in dramas like “ER” and “Deadwood.”
In addition to “Friends,” where he played the building super Mr. Treeger, he appeared in a memorable episode of “Seinfeld” as a clothing-store owner and had recurring roles in the comedies “Lucky Louie” (starring Louis C.K.), “The George Carlin Show” and more recently “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
Hagerty is survived by his wife Mary Kathryn, his sister Mary Ann Hagerty, her wife Kathleen O’Rourke, and their daughter Meg, according to Everett’s post.
