Saved By the Bell's Dustin Diamond Passes Away at 44

Tragic news – Dustin Diamond has passed away at the age of 44.

The Saved by the Bell star was hospitalized in January after experiencing pain all over his body. It was discovered that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 small cell carcinoma, which is commonly referred to as advanced lung cancer.

Variety is now reporting that Dustin died on Monday (February 1).

“We are saddened to confirm of Dustin Diamond’s passing on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021, due to carcinoma,” his agent said in a statement to TV Line. “He was diagnosed with this brutal, relentless form of malignant cancer only three weeks ago. In that time, it managed to spread rapidly throughout his system; the only mercy it exhibited was its sharp and swift execution. Dustin did not suffer. He did not have to lie submerged in pain. For that, we are grateful.

He was most well known for portraying his iconic role of Samuel “Screech” Powers on the iconic show Saved By the Bell.

Earlier today, Dustin’s friend revealed his two dying wishes.

Our thoughts are with Dustin‘s friends, family, and loved ones during this difficult time. RIP.
