The heartbreaking news just keeps coming. It is with heavy hearts we announce that the cast of Nickelodeon’s Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn is currently mourning the loss of one of their own.

John Tamaki, the man who was the stand-in for actor Mace Coronel (Dicky Harper), unfortunately passed away at the beginning of the month. The 11-year-old star paid his respects to JT on his Facebook page:

“So very sad to hear about the passing of a good man and a good friend. I will miss him very much. I had the pleasure of working with JT on Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn because he was my stand in, in case you don’t know what that means, he is the other half of what you actually see in the finished product, so production can adjust and make sure the show comes out great. JT showed us all how you appreciate life everyday and no matter what happens smile. Rest in Peace JT”

Mace also shared a picture of the two boys together with the caption, “I’ll be missing you friend.”
