LOS ANGELES — Joe E. Tata, the actor best known as Peach Pit Diner owner Nat Bussichio on the 1990s teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210, has died. He was 85.

His daughter, Kelly Katherine Tata, announced Thursday on a GoFundMe page that her father passed away on Wednesday night. She previously wrote that her father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2018.

“My dad and I are forever grateful for the love and support from family, friends and fans,” said Tata’s daughter, who also wrote that the remaining funds raised from the campaign will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. She called her father “honest, kind, and a truly incredible father.”

Tata has appeared on television shows including Lost in Space, The Rockford Files, Gomer Pyle, USMC, and the original Batman series. However, he was most popular for the role he played on “Beverly Hills, 90210” for all 10 seasons of the hit series.

Ian Ziering, a 90210 star, wrote in a social media post that he admires Tata as “one of the happiest people I’ve ever worked with.”

He said Tata was “generous with his wisdom as he was with his kindness.”
