    RIP Wilford Brimley

    Wilford Brimley -- an iconic actor who was the face of Quaker Oats for years, as well as a spokesperson for diabetes education -- has died ... a rep tells TMZ.

    We're told Brimley passed away Saturday morning at his home in Utah. Sources with direct knowledge of Wilford's health tell us he was in an ICU wing of a hospital on dialysis, and very sick for days.

    I remember him in several films back when I was a kid in the 80s. He was great in Cocoon. RIP

    RIP. He was kind of an underrated actor and in some really good movies. I’m a little surprised he was 85 since he was playing an old retired guy 35 years ago in Cocoon.

    He was an actor that popped up in so many movies, the signature mustache made him easy to spot. I can still remember the Quaker Oats and Liberty Mutual Diabeetus commercials pretty clearly.

    RIP

    Loved him in Cocoon and as the Quaker Oats dude. He was also in a family show called "Our House" with Shannen Doherty and Deidre Hall. He had a pretty full career.
    RIP Wilford
