Regis Philbin’s Wife and Daughters Speak Out After His Death


Our hearts are still mourning the death of Regis Philbin.

Since news of his death hit the media, friends and fans have showed an outpouring of love for the beloved TV icon.

Now, his wife of 50 years and the couple’s children are opening up.

“He let everyone into his life,” Joy Philbin and their daughters Jennifer and Joanna told People magazine. “He turned every little daily annoyance and happiness into a story, and he shared all those little stories with people in a joyful and conversational way. It made his audience feel like they were right alongside him — because they were.”

The family continued, “His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him – for his warmth, his legendary sense of humor, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about. We thank his fans and admirers for their incredible support over his 60-year career and ask for privacy as we mourn his loss.”

What a man. What an American. What a loss.

We’ll forever miss you, Regis. Thank you for making us smile.
