He appeared in all ten seasons of the 1990s teen drama as Nat Bussichio, the proprietor of the Peach Pit café.

His daughter Kelly Katherine Tata revealed that her father passed away on Wednesday night in a statement on a GoFundMe website on Thursday (Aug 25).

Ian Ziering, a 90210 star, said Tata was “as generous with his wisdom as he was with his kindness”.

He said, “Joey was truly an OG; I remember seeing him on the ‘Rockford Files’ with James Garner years before we worked together on ‘90210.”

Co-star Tori Spelling posted several pictures of the two on Instagram along with this statement, "We lost our family and wonderful friend Joe E. Tata."

Garth said, "I feel like there's a reunion party at the Peach Pit in heaven, and I find comfort knowing there will be a place there for me, eventually surrounded by my wonderful friends.”

Shannen Doherty, who played Brenda Walsh, also paid tribute by sharing a photo of herself and Tata on her Instagram Story.

Over the past few years, the "90210" family has lost several co-stars, including actor Luke Perry, who passed away in March 2019 at 52.

His final TV appearance came in 2014 on ABC Family's "Mystery Girls," when he shared a scene with his "90210" co-stars Spelling and Garth.
