        PETER BOYLE, FATHER ON "RAYMOND," DEAD AT 71

Peter Boyle, the nosy, curmudgeonly father on the hit sitcom 
"Everybody Loves Raymond," died Wednesday at a New York 
hospital. He was 71. He was an Emmy winner in 1996 for his 
guest-starring role in an episode of "The X Files," and he 
was nominated for what he is perhaps best known for, Frank 
Barone in "Raymond." His film roles include the bumbling 
monster in Mel Brooks' 1974 spoof "Young Frankenstein." It 
was on the "Frankenstein" set he met journalist Loraine 
Alterman, whom he married in 1977, with their mutual friend 
John Lennon as best man.

charts in the 1950s, died on Saturday in Manhattan. She was 
87. During her years in show business, Ms. Gibbs was widely

letters addressed simply, "Her Nibs."
