In the wake of Dustin DiamondAfter his death, fans remember his best-known role as the one and only Samuel “Screech” Powers on Saved By the Bell.
The actor died of cancer on Monday, February 1, aged 44, less than a month after being hospitalized for mysterious pain and subsequently diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
“During that time, it managed to spread quickly through its system. The only grace it showed was its sharp and quick execution,” Diamond’s agent told E! News. “Dustin didn’t suffer. He didn’t have to lie in pain. We are grateful for that.”
The Representative also paid tribute to Diamond’s “history of mishaps” and the “unfortunate events” that have made headlines in recent years, but ultimately described his client as “a humorous and cocky person whose greatest passion was making others laugh “.
In mourning for Diamond’s loss, Saved By the Bell fans and his former co-stars have shared similar feelings.
