James Avery — the beloved dad on “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” — has died at age 65 .

Avery died in an L.A. hospital last night. Avery had recently undergone surgery for an undisclosed illness and took a turn for the worse late yesterday.

And we’re told … his wife, Barbara, had been at his bedside but left for a short period of time to get something to eat. When she came back, she learned he had just died.

Alfonso Ribeiro — who played Avery’s son on “Fresh Prince” — just posted a message on his Facebook page.
