Actor Tommy Mykal Ford, best known for his role as ‘Tommy’ on the hit 90’s sitcom ‘Martin,’ died Wednesday after an aneurysm burst in his abdomen. He was 52.

Joy Pervis, Ford’s representative, confirmed the actor’s death in a family statement shared with NBC.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of our beloved son, father, brother, husband, and friend,” the family said.

For the past several weeks, Ford had been documenting his recovery from a knee replacement surgery on social media. TMZ reported early Wednesday that Ford had been hospitalized over the weekend when complications developed from his surgery and had been placed on life support.
