"Last night my dad passed away," Rob Reiner wrote. "As I write this my heart is hurting. He was my guiding light."

Carl Reiner, the writer, actor, director and producer whose many decades' worth of credits -- including "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "The 2000-Year-Old Man" -- showcased a ready wit and a generous spirit, has died, his son, director Rob Reiner, announced in a tweet.

Carl Reiner died Monday of natural causes at his home in Beverly Hills, his assistant Judy Nagy told Variety.

His career spanned live television, Broadway, motion pictures, record albums and a variety of guest appearances. He was a performer and writer on the legendary "Your Show of Shows." He created "The Dick Van Dyke Show," one of the great situation comedies in history, which was based on his life as a comedy writer.
