Weathermax was found dead in his Box Canyon, Calif., home Sunday, his half brother Joey D. Vieira told the New York Daily News. Weathermax had retired from working as a grip on film and TV sets a couple of years ago due to health issues.
On The Addams Family, Weathermax played Pugsley, the son of macabre parents Morticia and Gomez – played by Carolyn Jones and John Astin – and the brother of Wednesday (Lisa Loring). The show aired on ABC from 1964 to 1966.
In the years after The Addams Family went off the air, Weathermax retired from acting. He ultimately made a career behind the camera, working as a grip and set builder.
