George released the following statement to honor his beloved cousin.

“Today history will mark giant changes in our world, and lost to most will be that on the same day Miguel Ferrer lost his battle to throat cancer. But not lost to his family. Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will.”

 

Ferrer also starred in the original Twin Peaks series as FBI pathologist Albert Rosenfield.

He will appear in the upcoming Showtime reboot of the David Lynch series, which is set to air on May 21st.

Ferrer is survived by his wife Lori and two sons.
