Comedians Mel Brooks, left, and Reiner pose with their Grammy Awards for best spoken comedy album on February 24, 1999, in Los Angeles.
Reiner created, produced and acted in one of the most celebrated comedies in television history, "The Dick Van Dyke Show". All three came from his marriage to Estelle Lebost, who died in 2008.
Reiner died of natural causes.
In recent years, Brooks would go over to Reiner's house nearly every night to eat dinner and watch Jeopardy! and a movie, preferably one featuring the line "Secure the perimeter" and/or "You better get some rest".

In later years, according to Vanity Fair, Reiner and Brooks would get together every evening at Reiner's home, eat dinner, watch Jeopardy and then watch a movie.
We here at CinemaBlend send our thoughts to Carl Reiner's loved ones at this time. Reiner stayed with Caesar throughout the 1950s, until he developed his own show about a comedy writer, which was given to Van Dyke as a vehicle along with Mary Tyler Moore.
"He'll be greatly missed". (TMZ first broke the news on Tuesday.) His passing marks the end of a wildly successful career that included timeless collaborations with Mel Brooks and indelible contributions across the board to TV and film. After its impressive box office figures, the pair made three more films in a row - Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982), The Man with Two Brains (1983) and All of Me (1984) - all of which were substantial successes. Jon Cryer also tweeted a pretty brilliant letter from Reiner after subbing in for him as an awards show host.
Carl also made appearances on several TV shows during his successful Hollywood career, including "Two and Half Men" and "Hot in Cleveland".
Younger fans will recognize Carl from his role as Saul Bloom in the Ocean's movie, plotting and scheming alongside Danny Ocean (George Clooney), Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt), and Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon.) "You do it all so well", George said to Carl during a 2012 Television Academy tribute.
