In the same statement released by DeLuise's publicist, his co-star and very good friend, Burt Reynolds, fondly recalled his time with the actor saying,
"Dom always made you feel better when he was around and there will never be another like him. I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone. I will miss him very much."
The late actor also wrote books for young children. He took popular children's stories like 'Hansel and Gretel' and gave them his comedic twist.
His literary works include an original story, 'Charlie the Caterpiller' published in 1993.
