Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver on the television show "Leave It to Beaver," has passed away at the age of 77.

This is a challenging moment," Christopher Dow stated. As the saying goes, "Yes, he is still alive, but in his last hours; under hospice care."

Earlier on Tuesday, Dow's management team announced the actor's death through a Facebook post, which has since been removed.

Dow's wife offered "fake information" to his management team, his son said. Dow's wife "thought her husband was dead," according TMZ. She told Dow's executives.

Just one month after he turned 77, Shulkind made the announcement that he had been diagnosed with cancer once again in the month of May.

Shulkind stated, "Dear friends and followers of Tony Dow, I have awful news." Tony has cancer again. His bravery is heartbreaking, however.

Dow featured in "Leave it to Beaver" with Jerry Mathers, Barbara Billingsley, Hugh Beaumont, and Ken Osmond. Before ABC, the sitcom played for six seasons on CBS.
