Bill Macy (born Wolf Mavin Garber, May 18, 1922 – October 17, 2019) appeared in two episodes of All in the Family in seasons 2 and 3, first as a police officer in "Archie Sees a Mugging" in Season 2, then as Walter Findlay, the husband of Maude Findlay in episode titled "Maude", which served as the pilot episode for the spinoff series of the same name, in Season 3.

Macy was born in Revere, Massachusetts, to Mollie (née Friedopfer) and Michael Garber, a manufacturer.[1] He is best known for his portrayal of Walter Findlay, the long-suffering husband of the title character on the CBS television sitcom series Maude.

Bill was also an original cast member of the long-running theatrical revue Oh! Calcutta!. Since Maude was canceled in 1978, he had made more than 70 appearances on film and television, including a memorable role as the co-inventor of the 'Opti-grab' in the 1979 Steve Martin comedy The Jerk, and as the head television writer in Richard Benjamin's 1982 hit My Favorite Year.

Macy appeared occasionally on Seinfeld as one of the residents of "Del Boca Vista," a Florida retirement community in which Jerry Seinfeld's parents lived, as well as on the short-lived Kelsey Grammer/Patricia Heaton situation comedy Back to You.[2] He had a memorable guest appearance as an aging gambler in the television show Las Vegas. In 2006, he also made a cameo appearance on My Name is Earl in the second season episode, Van Hickey, as an elderly patient in a nursing home who claims he "Once tongue-kissed a Jamaican Woman".
