   Marty Ingels was a raspy-voiced comedian, actor, and talent agent who was married to singer and actress Shirley Jones for nearly 40 years. The actress is said to be distraught over his passing.

He co-starred for one season with John Astin in the 1962 comedy I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster. Ingels also did voice work for hundreds of cartoons, commercials, and video games. He later ran a talent agency that booked movie stars such as John Wayne, Orson Welles, and Cary Grant for television commercials.       MARTY INGELS —->

    In 1974, Ingels met Shirley Jones, co-star of the hit sitcom The Partridge Family, at a party at actor Michael Landon’s home. They married in 1977. Their book, Shirley & Marty: An Unlikely Love Story, was published in 1990. Three years later, Ingels sued actress June Allyson for his agency commission. Allyson denied wrongdoing and countersued. He pled no contest to making annoying phone calls to Allyson.

   Marty Ingels was 79.
