‘Animal House’ Actor Stephen Furst Dies At Age 63

Actor Stephen Furst, 63, expired on Friday from complications from diabetes, according to his sons’ bulletin on Facebook.

Furst is best known for his breakout role as Flounder in the iconic cinema “National Lampoon’s Animal House.” His character’s real call, Kent Dorfman, was quickly forgotten in favor the name given to them by his fraternity brethren. Flounder begins the movie as a” real zero” and gets involved in the hilarious frat hijinks that propels the film.

It’s those funny minutes that Furst’s sons, Nathan and Griffith, ask pals and followers to hold on to.

” To truly honor him, do not cry out for the loss of Stephen Furst ,” the proclamation reads.” But rather, enjoy recollections of all the times he made you snicker, titter, or even snort to your own shame. He intensely believed that laugher is the best therapy, and he would want us to practice that now .”

For some, it was hard to dream Furst as anyone other than the iconic Delta frat brother, but the actor had a long listing of credits that include the television series'” St. Elsewhere” and” Babylon 5.” He likewise had a career as a voice actor, recording for cartoons such as “Freakazoid!” and” Buzz Lightyear of Star Command .”

Friends and devotees mourned his loss with posts on social media.

” And no matter whom you, when you think of Steve, instead of being sad, celebrate their own lives by watching one of his movies or use one of his chips to make someone else titter — really, really hard ,” the family notice reads.

You can relive the moment Dorfman became Flounder in the clip below.
