Farewell to Tom Sizemore, he was in irreversible coma from a brain aneurysm

The actor, 61, died while hospitalized in the intensive care unit since last Feb. 18 after a brain aneurysm struck him due to a stroke. The family was considering "end of life."

Tom Sizemore has died. This was announced March 3 by Charles Lago, his longtime manager: "It is with great sadness and regret that I must announce that actor Thomas Edward Sizemore, 61, passed away peacefully in his sleep today at St Joseph's Hospital in Burbank. His brother Paul and twins Jayden and Jagger (born in 2005 from his relationship with Janelle McIntire, which lasted from 2003 to 2006, ed.) were by his side," reads the press note published by NBC News. 

The actor's death came just days after he suffered a brain aneurysm that had reduced him to a very critical condition, determined by an irreversible coma.

Last Feb. 27, Lake himself had confirmed the aneurysm and explained that doctors had recommended that his family make an "end-of-life" decision.  Sizemore reportedly fainted while in his Los Angeles home on Feb. 18 and was later transported to the hospital by paramedics. It was discovered that he had suffered a brain aneurysm caused by a stroke. Since that day, Tom has remained in critical condition, admitted to intensive care in a comatose state. Also according to the manager, doctors had informed the actor's family that there was "no more hope" for him.

In the note released March 3, Lago also shared a statement from Sizemore's ex-wife, actress Maeve Quinlan. The two were married from 1996 to 1999. "My deepest condolences to the entire Sizemore family and Tom's longtime manager Charles Lago," Quinlan wrote.

"My thoughts and prayers go especially to Tom's two sons, Jayden and Jagger. May God hold you both in the palm of his hand, give you strength and bless you all the days of your lives."

Paul Sizemore also remembered his brother in pained words,

"I am deeply saddened by the loss of my older brother Tom. He was truly a great man. He influenced my life more than anyone I know. He was talented, loving, generous and could entertain you endlessly with his wit and storytelling skills. I am devastated he is gone and I will always miss him."

A native of Detroit, where he was born in 1961, Tom Sizemore had become famous for his "tough guy" roles in many war and action films: he played cop-killer Jack Scagnetti in Natural Born Killers, Sergeant Michael Horvath in Saving Private Ryan, and robber Michael Cheritto in Heat – The Challenge, to name a few. 

In 2000 he had earned a Golden Globes nomination for best actor for The Cold Eye of the Witness. Most recently, he had appeared in cameos in the TV series Twin Peaks and Cobra Kai.
