The cause of death was congestive heart failure, his wife Patricia told the New York Times.
"My World and Welcome to It" was based on James Thurber's humorous essays and cartoons, and Windom later toured with a one-man show drawn from the program.
He may have been at least as well known for his numerous guest appearances on several TV shows, including "Star Trek," "The Twilight Zone" and "Night Gallery." But it was a recurring role that began in 1998 on "Murder, She Wrote" that may have brought him the most fame.
He played a doctor in the imaginary town of Cabot Cove, Me., who was best friends with the show's star, played by Angela Landsbury.
