Tom Towles, a character actor best-known for his work in indie-horror flicks, has died. He was 71 years old.
His agent confirmed his passing to E! News Monday, noting that he was transported to a Florida hospital in Pinellas March 29 after suffering a stroke. Per Towles' agent, he passed away peacefully on Thursday and is survived by his sister Kai Towles and niece Laine Taylor.
It was actually Rob Zombie, who featured Towles in a number of his movies, who first shared the sad news in a Facebook post Sunday.
"I just got word that our buddy Tom Towles has died," he wrote. "He was such a great guy and I am so grateful that we got to work together several times. He will be really missed."
