Geoffrey Lewis, an actor who has appeared alongside Clint Eastwood on numerous occasions, has died on Tuesday in California due to natural causes, according to Michael Henderson, a family friend. He was 79 years old.

Lewis appeared in movies such as “Every Which Way But Loose,” where he played the role of Orville Boggs, the friend of Eastwood’s character.

Juliette Lewis, Oscar-nominated daughter of Geoffrey, shared her love for her father on Twitter.

Clintwood and Lewis first worked together in 1973’s “High Plains Drifter,” starting a string of collaboration when it was followed by 1974’s “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.”

Lewis was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role as Earl Tucker, a bartender on “Flo,” a sitcom during the 1980’s.

One of his most well-known roles was that of a vampire gravedigger in CBS miniseries “Salem’s Lot,” based on Stephen King’s novel.
