David Lander, the actor who played Squiggy on the “Happy Days” spin-off “Laverne & Shirley,” died on Friday due to complications from multiple sclerosis, his wife Kathy told TMZ. He was 73.

Lander was diagnosed with MS in 1984 but didn’t reveal his diagnosis until 1999, when he published the book, “Fall Down, Laughing: How Squiggy Caught Multiple Sclerosis and Didn’t Tell Nobody.”

“Whatever happens, MS can’t take it all. I will always have my heart and soul, my wit and wisdom,” Lander said in 2007. “Wherever the chips may fall, if I fall with them I will make it a point to do so gracefully — and laughing.”
