American actor and comedian, noted family member, he is the younger brother of actor/comedian Dick Van Dyke.
Never as well-known as his brother, Jerry is perhaps most recognized for eight seasons of playing the genial sports coach on an American TV sitcom aptly named "Coach" beginning in 1989.
Married twice with three children from his first marriage, he retired to live on his ranch. One of his daughters, Kelly, committed suicide on 17 November 1991, aged 33.
On 5 January 2018, Van Dyke died at his Arkansas ranch at the age of 86.
