He didn't die 10 years ago though, was last year I believe. I knew it wasn't so recent as well though that he had.

He also co-starred in "Weird Al" Yankovic's hilarious cult classic UHF. Apparently he passed back in April, but the news didn't leak until yesterday. RIP to a very talented and funny guy.
