Frank Marth, most well-known for his multiple roles on "The Honeymooners," has died at the age of 91. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the actor suffered from congestive heart failure and Alzheimer's.

Marth was born and raised in New York City, later getting his acting start on the stage before moving to television in the late 1940s.

His TV credits include "The Fugitive," "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," "M*A*S*H" and "The Young and the Restless." However, it is his roles on "The Honeymooners" for which he's best remembered. He played a man who hires Alice (Audrey Meadows) to babysit his son, a criminal who holds Ralph (Jackie Gleason) and Alice hostage after they witness a robbery, and the narrator of Norton's (Art Carney) favorite show, "Captain Video."

"I always felt like I was going to a party, instead of work," Marth recalled of the program in Meadows' 1994 book "Love, Alice: My Life as a Honeymooner." "It was such a blast."
