He has a most extensive filmograohy than I would have thought knowning for him only Home Alone. It made him a,name nonetheless.

The article said he had minor back surgery and was recuperating in a hotel. It makes a person wonder what went wrong in surgery to cause his passing.

Wow, this was unexpected, just like the other thread.

Possible blood clot?

I've seen him in other things, but yeah I too mostly know him because of Home Alone.

Bet there's gonna be a lot of tweets from fans and fellow costars, especially from the Home Alone cast. Seen John Heard in tons of things, Cat People, Deceived, every version of Law & Order, CSi, O, Runner Runner, etc... Sure had a lot of talent and he will be missed, enjoy heaven John Heard.

Thanks again,John. I appreciate the visit every black Friday since I was a small child and will see you again then. I also look forward to seeing where he might pop up from seeing his filmography.

I only knew him from Home Alone, but I did enjoy that film and thought he did a good job as the father. He will definitely be missed.

There's a family photo with Kevin and his family in the first film, iirc. All the kids, minus the two with the glasses, are Kevin's siblings. The other two are Frank's kids.
