Frank Bank, best known for portraying the clumsy bully Clarence “Lumpy” Rutherford on Leave It to Beaver, died on April 13.
The actor had died just one day after his 71st birthday, and no cause of death has been reported.
Bank was born in Los Angeles, and first appeared on screen as the young Will Rogers in the 1952 biopic The Will Rogers Story. He followed that with his role as Clarence on the popular 1957-1963 series Leave It to Beaver.
When the sitcom was canceled, Bank continued to make sporadic TV appearances, but by 1972, he changed careers and became a stock-and-bond broker.
According to a 1998 PEOPLE profile, Bank and taught himself “everything there was to know about tax-free bonds.” And after three years of getting started, he was earning around $300,000 a year at an L.A.-based company, and boasted fellow Beaver co-stars Jerry Mathers and Barbara Billingsley.
Bank is survived by his second wife, Rebecca, and two daughters with his high school sweetheart and first wife.
