Cheryl Hines, who portrays Larry’s wife on Curb, penned a poignant Instagram tribute in Lewis’ memory. Recalling having a crush on him as a young comedy fan, Hines wrote “He was the funniest person on stage and the most handsome comedian. Then when I was cast on Curb Your Enthusiasm, I got to work with him and it was a dream come true.”

“He would take time to tell the people he loved what they meant to him — especially in recent years,” Hines added about Lewis’ warmth. “In between takes on Curb, he would tell me how special I was to him and how much he loved me. To be loved by Richard Lewis. A true gift. I love you Richard. You will be missed.”
