Actor Tom Sizemore has died in his sleep in hospital weeks after suffering a brain aneurysm, his manager has said.
Charles Lago said: “I am very saddened by the loss of not only a client but a great friend and mentor of almost 15 years.
“Tom was one of the most sincere, kind and generous human beings I have had the pleasure of knowing.
“His courage and determination through adversity was always an inspiration to me.
“The past couple of years were great for him and he was getting his life back to a great place.
“He loved his sons and his family. I will miss my friend Tom Sizemore greatly.”
Sizemore, 61, suffered a brain aneurysm as a result of a stroke in the early hours of 18 February, collapsing at home in Los Angeles before being taken to hospital by ambulance.
Since then he had been in critical condition, in a coma and in intensive care.
He never regained consciousness, Mr Lago said, adding that he had died in his sleep with his brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger, 17, at his side.
Mr Lago said: “The Sizemore family has been comforted by the hundreds of messages of support and love shown to their son, brother and father.
“They are asking for privacy during this difficult time and I am asking for those wishes to please be respected.”
There will be a private cremation service for the family with a larger celebration of life event planned in a few weeks.
