For nearly 30 years, there was no one Americans would rather start their day, drinking a morning coffee with, or laugh along with during late night tv talk shows, than Regis Philbin.
Philbin died at age 88 on Friday night, according to his family.
And like any celebrity worth knowing about, TMZ did the honors:
