Actor Tom Sizemore, best known for his role as Mike Horvath in the film “Saving Private Ryan,” has died at the age of 61. His representative, Charles Lago, confirmed that Sizemore passed away peacefully in his sleep at St. Joseph’s Hospital Burbank. Sizemore’s family, including his twin boys and brother Paul, were with him when he passed away.
According to Lago, Sizemore collapsed at his Los Angeles home on February 18, 2023, and was taken to the hospital by paramedics. Doctors found that he had suffered a brain aneurysm caused by a stroke. Since then, he had remained in a coma and critical condition in intensive care. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, Sizemore did not regain consciousness.
The family will have a private cremation service, and a larger celebration of life will be held later. Lago asked for privacy for the family during this difficult time.
Sizemore’s ex-wife Maeve Quinlan also expressed her condolences to the family and remembered their two sons, Jayden and Jagger, in her statement. Quinlan was married to Sizemore from 1996 to 1999.
Lago also shared a personal note, describing Sizemore as a “great friend and mentor” who was sincere, kind, and generous. He admired Sizemore’s courage and determination, even in the face of adversity.
Sizemore had a successful career in Hollywood, with notable roles in films like “Black Hawk Down” and “Heat.” However, his career took a hit due to issues with substance abuse and arrests for DUI, domestic abuse, and possession of a controlled substance.
Sizemore’s passing is a reminder of the importance of taking care of our health and seeking medical attention promptly. A brain aneurysm is a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention. Our thoughts go out to Sizemore’s family and loved ones during this difficult time. May he rest in peace.
