It’s with a heavy heart that I report Tommy “Tiny” Lister has passed away.
The actor, best known for his iconic role as “Deebo” in the Friday films, was found unconscious in his Marina Del Rey apartment on Thursday (December 10), just before 3 p.m.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His cause of death is unknown at this time.
Tiny was 62.
Ice Cube took to social media to remember his dear friend.
RIP Tiny “Deebo” Lister. America’s favorite bully was a born entertainer who would pop into character at the drop of a hat terrifying people on and off camera. Followed by a big smile and laugh. Thank you for being a good dude at heart. I miss you already.

My condolences to all who knew and loved Tiny.
Rest In Paradise.
