It's unfortunate that we just lost someone as iconic as Tiny Lister. Tom Lister who played Deebo, the president in The Fifth Element and was in so many more movies and tv shows was announced dead this morning in his Los Angeles home.

Tommy Lister has teamed up with Cemetery Tim in Yakima a couple of time in the past few months to help organize fundraising efforts for people in Yakima. He was always eager to meet the fans and snap a photo with them. An all around good dude.

TMZ reports he was found unconscious and 'dead on the scene' in his LA apartment. You can read more about it from TMZ.
