Mike Batayeh, an actor and comedian most known for his role on the venerable drama series Breaking Bad, passed away at the age of 52.

In a statement on Friday, his family acknowledged his passing.

According to Mike’s family, the celebrity passed away on June 1 after a “heart attack” while at his Michigan home. They confirmed this to TMZ.

Mike’s death was unexpected, and his sister Diane claims that he had no prior history of cardiac problems.

“He will be greatly missed by those who loved him and his great ability to bring laughter and joy to so many,” the family shared in a touching statement.

Mike appeared on three episodes of Breaking Bad from 2011 to 2012.

He portrayed Dennis Markowski, who worked for Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), a cool, collected, and calculating owner of the industrial laundromat Lavanderia Brillante.

The enterprise doubled as the meth lab where lead actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul’s Walter White and Jesse Pinkman conducted all of their business.

Mike had a lengthy, noteworthy career before his brief appearance on Breaking Bad, and he appeared on a variety of shows, from CSI: Miami to The Bernie Mac Show.

Many grieving followers of his farewell Instagram post used the platform to share their sorrow.

“You will be missed my friend,” one person wrote as another said: “I just heard. Save me a spot at the table in the pool hall, my friend.”

One follower reacted: “Rest in peace, brother. I miss you dearly.”

In his final post, Mike had a crowd laughing as he was in the middle of his stand-up set.

Back in March, Mike shared his advice for inspiring actors and actresses, as he told MacoFilm: “There are really no words of wisdom anyone can impart on anyone else… everyone has their own path.”

He continued: “Not to sound all Buddha, but the only thing I can impart is do what feels right for you and when you get opportunities never take them lightly and think to yourself, ‘Man, I’ll try harder on the next opportunity down the road.'”

“Lots of people and including myself in the past thought this was consciously or unconsciously… So be aware and treat every opportunity like it’s THE opportunity,” he concluded.
