Thomas Mikal Ford

It’s with an extremely heavy heart that I report Thomas Mikal Ford, best known for his role as Tommy Strawn on “Martin,” is on life support fighting for his life.

His wife, Gina Ford, confirmed to TMZ that he isn’t expected to make it through the day.

52-year-old Ford slipped into a state of unconsciousness Wednesday in an Atlanta hospital after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen.

There were conflicting reports stating Tommy passed away after “Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson appeared to have confirmed his passing via Instagram writing, “Today we lost a Father, Friend, Son, Brother and an amazing talent. May GOD bless #ThomasMikalFord and his family. Rest In Peace brother.”

Anthony later deleted the post. But, the damage was already done.

I extend my prayers to him and his family during this difficult time.


Tommy has passed away.
