Los Angeles – — Marty Ingels, a comedian, actor and talent agent who was married to actress Shirley Jones for nearly 40 years, has died in Los Angeles. He was 79.

A statement on behalf of Jones says Ingels died Wednesday in the Tarzana neighborhood following complications from a stroke.

Beginning in the 1960s Ingels appeared in episodes of several TV shows, including “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “Bewitched” and co-starred in the 1962 series “I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster.”

He also had small movie roles.

The raspy-voiced actor later did voice work for hundreds of cartoons, commercials and video games. He voiced Pac-Man in the 1982 animated series.

Ingels also ran a talent agency that booked movie stars such as John Wayne and Cary Grant for TV commercials.

He married Jones in 1977.
