Following Tommy “Tiny” Lister‘s passing, well-known names of the film industry flooded social media to send their condolences to the actor’s family and friends.

According to the information released by The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the actor, best known for his portrayal as ‘Deebo‘ in the 1995 film ‘Friday‘ was found dead inside his house in Marina Del Rey, California, by police after his family and co-workers could not reach him for a while. He was 62 years old.

Lister’s ‘Friday’ co-star thanked him for being a good-hearted man and wrote that he missed already Lister. The actor added:
