    Different World star Lou Myers passed away last night in West Virginia at the Charleston Medical Center after complications from a heart-related illness. 

    Myers, who was known for playing Mr. Vernon Gaines on the ’80s show, was 76 years old.

    According to TMZ:

    The President of Lou’s non-profit tells TMZ, Lou passed away last night.

    Lou was hospitalized in December for pneumonia but released after New Year’s. He collapsed at home a few weeks later and was hospitalized again.

    Lou’s heart stopped yesterday. Doctors were able to revive him, but he fell into a coma and passed just hours later. 

    An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the official cause of death. Myers will receive a military burial in West Virgnia, as he served time in the army.
