Ed Reimers, the actor who told television viewers, "You're in good hands with Allstate" for decades, died Sunday in upstate New York. The cause of death wasn't immediately clear.

Mr. Reimers was best known for delivering the Allstate Corp.'s famous slogan. He was the insurance giant's TV spokesman for 22 years, starting in 1957, according to the Northbrook, Ill.-based company's Web site.

Meanwhile, Mr. Reimers was an announcer for programs including the popular Western "Maverick" and the game show "Do You Trust Your Wife?" later known as "Who Do You Trust?" and hosted for much of its run by Johnny Carson.
