Marty Ingels, Shirley Jones' Husband, Actor, Passes At 79 In Los Angeles I came to know and love Mr. Ingels from meeting him and his wife Shirley Jones at the Night of 100 Stars Oscars Party in Beverly Hills Press release from Lozzi Media Relations: Long Time Beverly Hills Resident Comedian Marty Ingels, husband of Shirley Jones, dies at 79 Beverly Hills - (10/22/2015- Long time former Beverly Hills resident 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. “He often drove me crazy, but there's not a day I won't miss him and love him to my core,” Jones, who won a best supporting actress Oscar in 1961 for her portrayal of a prostitute in the “Elmer Gantry” and is best known for her role as the mother in the 1970-74 ABC comedy “The Partridge Family,” told Variety. The couple married in 1977. Ingels also formed his own talent agency, Ingels, Inc., which landed work in commercials for such notable actors as Orson Welles, and did voiceover work, Edward Lozzi, Ingels’ longtime publicist, told City News Service. The agency also booked movie stars such as John Wayne and Cary Grant for TV commercials. 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. At the time of his death, he was also in line for a producing credit on a movie about mobster John Gotti starring John Travolta, Lozzi said. Ingels also came to the financial aid of other Hollywood notables, including the late actor Mickey Rooney, Lozzi said. “He was a friend and if you were down he would help you out, financially, or pull strings, whatever, and he never took credit for it,” Lozzi said. Ingels was discovered by Jerry Lewis, who brought him to Hollywood from New York, Lozzi said. “Marty wasn't a braggart,” Lozzi said. “He liked to pontificate, (but) he just made millions of people laugh for decades.” City News Service and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
