RIP Screech


Dustin Diamond, who played the role of Screech on the popular 1990s high school comedy "Saved by the Bell," died Monday after a recent cancer diagnosis, according to Diamond's manager, Roger Paul.

Diamond first shared news of his cancer diagnosis last month.

At the time, his manager said his client's health was "serious" and that Diamond was undergoing further testing at a Florida hospital. He underwent his first round of chemotherapy days later.

An actor and stand-up comedian, Diamond found fame playing Samuel "Screech" Powers for more than a decade on the "Saved by the Bell" franchise.

Even though I was well into my adult years when the show was on, I always liked it.

And I thought Screech's crush on Lisa was so sweet.

RIP Dustin

Being diagnosed and dying three weeks later at 44 is terrifying.

I've never been a  fan of him or his character,  but 44 is far too young, and three weeks is far too fast to go.
