6ft2 peak is possible as he still appeared over 6ft1 in his 70's...

RIP. I think he was more 6'2 than 6'1.5 in his prime though, maybe 6'1.75.

RIP Fred, now he's yet another "best remembered", sadly. He could look pretty close back in the day to a 6'2" guy.

Peak height could have been six foot two

He always looked tall, I seen him in WALL-E, but I didn't know he was until I saw the movie again after I have watched Everybody Loves Raymond, which had him and Ray standing next to each other. He looked about as tall as Ray Romano and slightly taller than Peter Boyle who lost some height. I couldn't really tell his height in WALL-E though. Defintely a 6'1.5"-6'2" range guy at his peak.

he have always looked like a tall guy. MY guess is anywhere from 186,5- 187,5 in the afternoon. My best guess is legit 187cm ore 2 mm over.

Rob, is 6ft2 peak possible?
Editor Rob
it might be possible, would need to see how he looked in 70's again.

I agree with the below comments. Still 186-187cm today.

Oh wait, just saw a newer episode of Modern Family with Fred in it, he looked 6'1 in that one. So 6'1.5 range at peak is probably right.

I think this listing is actually too low, looks more 186-187 cm to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Sep/12
I reckon 6ft2(188cm) peak. Looked it in The Anchorman.

Just saw him last night at The Second City. I'd say 6' 1.5" easily. Possibly 6' 2".

He's clearly taller than Kelsey Grammer whose 6ft1. SO 6ft2 sounds correct.

fred willard is 6'2 1.88m tall so is robert culp both were on raymond as the dads of debra and amy, note ray romano is 6'2 1/2, and he was saw with both fred and robert a few times on the show, fred is a tall guy 6'2 definetely is right
Hugh said on 22/Mar/08
6ft2 peak maybe? He only looked 0.5-1 inch shorter than 6ft3 Will Ferrell in the Anchorman.

He was as tall or taller than Craig Ferguson tonight

I love Catherine O'Hara -- not because she is tall, but because she is the most wonderfully funny female actress I've ever seen -- next to Catherine Tate. Her expressions and reactions while on screen often flip me out of my seat. If I even think of her character in "Beetlejuice," I can't speak. Glenn, I searched for Catherine Tate here as well. She's not here. How tall is she? What about her feet, lifts, insoles, etc.? Do you have a photo of Catherine O'Hara or of Catherine Tate? I don't have anything to say about Fred Willard. Won't he pose for a photo with you? Maybe he would with either of the Catherines? Anchormen, by the way, look bigger on screen because of shoulder pads and the head and shoulder shots.

Yeah, more like 6'1.25 next to 5'8 Catherine O'Hara.
