It’s been a really difficult year for celebrity deaths and Geoff Edwards is the latest star to be laid to rest.

The game show host legend succumbed to complications from pneumonia and died at 83 years of age at the St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday (March 5).

Among Edwards’ gigs were hit shows like “Jackpot!” and “Treasure Hunt” and he also had spots on “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Diff’rent Strokes.”

Geoff’s agent told press, "[He] helped change the look of game shows. He had long hair, he never wore a tie, he had an unbuttoned shirt with a gold chain, jeans, and boots. In 1974, that was really dramatic."

Edwards will always be known for his catch phrase, “Right you are!”
