Eric “The Actor” Lynch, a member of SiriusXM’s ‘The Howard Stern Show” wack packer, has passed away at the age of 39. His long-time manager, Johnny Fratto, confirmed the news of his death on Twitter on Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014.
The radio personality will be missed and admired forever for his enduring spirit and zeal for survival. Read on for further details about his passing.
Eric Shaun Lynch (March 11, 1975–Sept. 20, 2014) was plagued by various health conditions, which he often updated in the show. Regardless of his bad health, Lynch has survived every doctor’s calculation for his life anticipation. His height between 3 ft 0 in (0.91 m) and 3 ft 5 in (1.04 m) was on the verge to be considered to have dwarfism. Because of his short legs and a club foot, he used a wheelchair to move around. His other sufferings included stork bite, which gave him a “blotchy” complexion, and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which resulted in gnarled fingers.
A hospital official confirmed to TMZ that Lynch was rushed to a hospital in Sacramento, Calif., on Sept. 20, 2014 after he began having heart problems, following a multiple organ failure.
Lynch had been calling into Stern’s radio show since 2002, in due course becoming a member of the comedian’s “wack pack,” a group of personalities frequently heard on the show. He recently appeared on the show last week. During that appearance, he revealed that his parents would be taking over as permanent concierges.
The radio personality was best known for frolics like yelling at Howard, as well as his rapport with Stern’s staff, who called him “Eric the Midget.” Lynch also had several television credits, including guest spots on “Fringe,” “In Plain Sight” and “American Dreams.”
“Rest in peace, Eric the Actor. We love you,” tweeted Sirius XM’s official handler.
May his soul rest in peace!
