Who Was Joe E. Tata?
“Joey was definitely an OG; I recall watching him with James Garner on the Rockford files years before we collaborated on 90210. In the first season of the Batman television series, he frequently served as a supporting antagonist. From 1990 through 2000, Joe portrayed Nat in the American teen drama series 90210 on a regular basis. He played the proprietor and manager of the Peach Pit diner and later appeared in the show’s spin-off in the same capacity.
As Private Neddick in the 1964 comedy series No Time for Sergeants, Joe established his career and rose to fame. The actor made his acting debut in eight episodes of The Rockford Files in the 1970s before finding success on Beverly Hills 90210. After four years of health decline, Joe’s Alzheimer’s disease was formally identified in 2018. His daughter Kelly Tata started a GoFundMe page in his honor, requesting support from followers for his medical expenses. She described her father as honest, kind, and truly incredible.
Writing further, Kelly revealed that her father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and claimed that shortly after diagnosis, Joe unwittingly signed paperwork admitting him into a conservatorship. The child star went on to say that she was never served proper notice of these arrangements. Kelly asked the fans to help them arrange $5,000 so that they can hire a mediator to clear up the conservatorship confusion and rent a car to attend to his needs.
