Thomas Mikal Ford‘s beloved character on ‘Martin’ made him a television icon and a household name in the Black community. Ford passed away yesterday after suffering a stomach aneurysm in the weeks after knee surgery.

Family, friends and fans are mourning his untimely death and remembering the actor by reliving some of his greatest comedic moments on social media.
