It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that actor Stephen Furst has passed away at the age of 63 years old. The news was broken by his son Nathan who confirmed that Furst died on Friday at his home in Moorpark, California, north of Los Angeles. When speaking of his father Nathan said:
“He was proudest of his family, and he felt blessed and incredibly privileged to have the career that he had and enjoyed.”
