Irwin Keyes, a longtime character actor, has passed away at the age of 63, multiple sources have confirmed.

The celebrity, who is most recognizable for his roles in the ’80s TV series The Jeffersons and the Rob Zombie film House of 1000 Corpses, died in his Playa Del Rey, California home on Wednesday, July 8.

Keyes had suffered from acromegaly, a pituitary gland disorder which causes the abnormal growth of the hands, feet and face, and had been in treatment for the disorder in the months before his death.

Keyes’ niece Rene Galarza took to Facebook to confirm that he passed: “It’s with deep sympathy that I’m writing this post. Early this morning my family was informed that our beloved uncle, brother, teammate and friend, Irwin Keyes, has had his last curtain call. He is now an angel for us and will be watching down. Our family wishes to thank all of you who have been a part of his life. He will be missed very much.”

Rob Zombie also took to his Facebook to honor Keyes, writing, “I have just heard the terrible news that our friend Irwin Keyes has passed away. Irwin was a cool guy and a big part of the House of 1000 Corpses family. He will be missed by us all.”

Keyes started his acting career in 1978 and had 96 acting credits to his name.
