I’m sad to report Dustin Diamond has passed away.

The actor, best known for his role as Samuel “Screech” Powers on “Saved By the Bell,” died Monday (February 1) morning after battling stage 4 lung cancer.

He was 44.

Via TMZ:

Dustin’s death comes just a couple of weeks after completing his first round of chemo after he was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell carcinoma … which is commonly referred to as lung cancer. We were told the cancer started somewhere in Dustin’s body and metastasized in his lungs.

He was initially hospitalized in Florida in January after feeling pain all over his body and a general sense of unease. Unfortunately for the kid star … it turned out to be cancer.

My sincerest condolences to the Diamond family and all who knew and loved Dustin.

May he Rest In Peace.
