Seinfeld actor Peter Crombie has died aged 71.

The actor played Crazy Joe Davola in the fourth season of the hit show, which ran from 1989 to 1998.

Crombie died on Wednesday after a brief illness, his ex-wife confirmed.

She said: ‘He was the kindest most caring, giving, considerate man.’

Nadine Kijner added to : ‘He was loved by everybody, generous and never had anything bad to say about anyone.’

She also wrote on Instagram, alongside pictures from their wedding day: ‘It is with shock and extreme sadness that I share my Ex-husband died this morning.

‘ Thank you for so many wonderful memories and being such a good man. Fly free into the Un-boundless source of light, Peter.

‘May you be greeted with love by your parents, and Oliver. So so many people loved you because you were a kind, giving, caring and creative Soul.’

On Seinfeld, Crombie appeared in five episodes as an antagonist to Jerry Seinfeld, and at one point dated Jerry’s friend Elaine (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus).

Crombie also held roles in movies including Broken Vows, Rising Sun, The Doors and Natural Born Killers.

He elsewhere starred as Frankenstein’s Creature in 1997 miniseries House of Frankenstein, and held TV roles in Law and Order, Star Trek: Deep Space nine, Texas Ranger, NYPD Blue and Perfect Strangers.
