Pat Harrington Jr., who played the cocky superintendent Dwayne Schneider on the CBS sitcom One Day at a Time, has died. He was 86. states:

Harrington, who won a Golden Globe in 1981 and an Emmy Award in 1984 for his work on the show, died Wednesday night in Los Angeles surrounded by his family, his daughters Tresa and Terry reported on Facebook. Their father had been suffering from Alzheimer’s and recently had been hospitalized after a fall. One Day at a Time, which aired from December 1975 to May 1984, starred Bonnie Franklin as a divorced mom raising two teenage girls (Mackenzie Phillips, Valerie Bertinelli) in an apartment in Indianapolis. With his thin mustache, tool belt, blue vest and a pack of cigarettes in the rolled-up sleeve of his T-shirt, Harrington’s Schneider often entered unannounced into the ladies’ home and constantly stole scenes on the sitcom, which, befitting a Norman Lear production, explored serious issues.
