Dustin Diamond star of “Saved by the Bell” died Monday after a three-week fight with cancer according to his representatives. He was 44. This is heartbreaking news. Diamond was a cast member of one of my favorite shows growing up as a teen.

According to Diamonds representative, Roger Paul. “Dustin did not suffer. He did not have to lie submerged in pain. For that, we are grateful,” Diamond’s team said in a statement to The Associated Press and “Entertainment Tonight.”

Diamond, best known for playing Screech on the hit ’90s sitcom, was hospitalized last month in Florida and his team disclosed later that he had cancer.

Several of Diamond’s Saved by the Bell costars wished him well on social media after the news of his cancer diagnosis broke, and after his death Monday shared tributes to the actor.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Diamond family and his friends.
