Joe E. Tata, best known for his role as Nat Bussichio on the '90s teen drama "Beverly Hills, 90210," has died following a battle with Alzheimer's disease. He was 85.
Tata's daughter, Kelly Tata, announced her father "passed away peacefully last night August 24, 2022" on a GoFundMe page Thursday.
Kelly created the page in October 2021 to help her father navigate his condition with Alzheimer's disease, which she said he was diagnosed within 2018.
My father and I are forever grateful for the love and support of family, friends, and fans," Kelly wrote Thursday. "Please continue to keep us in your prayers as I grieve the loss of my best friend.
Kelly said the remaining funds collected from the fundraiser will be donated to the nonprofit Alzheimer's Association.
