Shemp Posted November 2, 2011 Report Share Posted November 2, 2011 Veteran character actor Sid Melton has died. He was 94. (A few years older than imdb and other sources report.) Sid appeared in three episodes of DESILU-WESTINGHOUSE PLAYOUSE (THE LUCY-DESI COMEDY HOUR), "Milton Berle Hides at the Ricardos," "Lucy Goes to Alaska" and "Lucy Wins a Racehorse." His most well-known roles were on THE DANNY THOMAS SHOW as nightclub owner 'Charley Halper', and of course the inept carpenter 'Alf Monroe' on GREEN ACRES. He also had recurring roles on GOMER PYLE USMC as conman 'Friendly Freddy' and THE GOLDEN GIRLS as the voice of 'Salvadore Petrillo.' A very funny man, and a very nice man. Rest in peace.
