Tony Dow’s Management Organization Retracts the Star Has Passed Away Announcement!

Tony Dow, an actor, and director best remembered for his portrayal as Wally Cleaver’s elder brother on “Leave It to Beaver,” passed on Tuesday morning

The post has since been deleted by Dow’s management team. Judy Twersky, a longtime friend of Dow’s, spoke with his wife, Lauren Dow, around 3:30 p.m. ET

Twersky was informed by Lauren Dow that he is still breathing and receiving hospice care.

Dow was unaware of what transpired with the statement released by her husband’s management team earlier today, according to Twersky.

Wally Cleaver, the obedient son, great athlete, and Boy Scout, became inexorably linked to Dow, who claimed he struggled to stand alone.

Dow told CBS that he discovered optimism after accepting his diagnosis and beginning therapy. He also turned his optimism into art, sculpting intricate works in his home studio.
