He played "Simpson" on Little House in the episode Quarantine.

Actor Rance Howard, father of director Ron Howard and Clint Howard, died on Saturday. He was 89.

Ron Howard announced his father’s passing on Twitter.

“Clint & I have been blessed to be Rance Howard’s sons,” he wrote. “Today he passed at 89. He stood especially tall [for] his ability to balance ambition [with] great personal integrity. A depression-era farm boy, his passion for acting changed the course of our family history. We love & miss U Dad.”

Howard appeared in several of Ron Howard’s movies, including “Apollo 13,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “Splash,” “Cocoon,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Parenthood” and Howard’s directorial debut, “Grand Theft Auto.”

He is also grandfather to actresses Bryce Dallas Howard and Paige Howard.

Born in Oklahoma, Howard’s acting career spanned several decades. His film credits include “Chinatown” and Alexander Payne’s 2013 drama “Nebraska.” On the small screen, he appeared in several TV shows like “Seinfeld,” “Murder, She Wrote” and Ron Howard’s “Happy Days.”

Blue  So sad....I have always loved the Howard Family and how dedicated they are to each other and their family values.  You can see Rance and Clint in most every one of Ron's movies...Clint can usually be found quickly and easily, Rance is kind of a 'Where's Waldo' type character that really needs searching to find. Praying for the Howard family during this time....

Clint played Mark on Gentle Ben and Rance played a neighbour Mr. Boomhouser (sp??). I am in the middle of watching series 1 right now. At the same time that Gentle Ben was being filmed with Clint and Rance in the zFlorida Everglades, Ron was filming Andy Griffith in LA, living with his mother. There in a commentary for one of the episodes of GB where Rance and Clint tell how hard it was to get the whole family together on weekends.
