NEW YORK - TV legend Carl Reiner has died at the age of 98, reports TMZ.

The creator of the Dick Van Dyke Show passed at his home in Beverly Hills Monday night surrounded by family, reported the celebrity news site.

Reiner was active into his later years even apparently posting tweets about a fellow actor only hours before his death.

He was probably best known for playing the temperamental comedian Alan Brady. Reiner cast a new actress at the time- Mary Tyler Moore- to play Van Dyke's wife.

Reiner and his wife, Estelle, were parents to three children including actor and director Rob Reiner.
