Philip McKeon who played Linda Lavin’s son Tommy on the classic CBS Sitcom ‘Alice’ has died at 55

Never metPhillip McKeon but I watched him just about every week on the CBS sitcom Alice which ran from 1976-85.

He played Linda Lavin’s son Tommy and he was just adorable. His younger sister, Nancy McKeon, played Jo on The Facts of Life at around the same time.

Very sad to learn that Phillip died today at age 55 after a long illness.

Post-acting career, he later worked for 10 years in the news department at Los Angeles radio outlet KFWB-AM. He then moved to Wimberly, Texas, where he spent the past several years hosting a local radio show.

He also produced several movies.

A family spokesman, Jeff Ballard, said in a statement: “We are all beyond heartbroken and devastated over Phil’s passing. His wonderful sense of humor, kindness and loyalty will be remembered by all who crossed his path in life.”

Below are several Instagram posts Nancy McKeon made about her brother over the past year,
