 PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A funeral home in Maine says Bob Elliott, half of the enduring television and radio comedy team Bob and Ray, has died. He was 92.

Rick Gagne, director of the Brackett Funeral Home, said the comedian died Tuesday at his home in Cundy's Harbor, Maine, part of the town of Harpswell. The cause of death was not immediately available.

For nearly 45 years, until the death of Elliott's comedy partner Ray Goulding, Bob and Ray entertained millions of radio listeners and television viewers. Elliott's youngest son, Chris, also became a comedian, appearing in films and on David Letterman's show.
