The 'Touched by an Angel' star was found dead in his San Francisco home on Monday, January 10.
Beloved U.S. TV star John Dye has died at the age of 47. The actor, best known for playing angel Andrew in the drama "Touched by an Angel", passed away at his San Francisco, California home on Monday, January 10 after suffering heart failure.
Dye racked up a number of TV credits during his career with appearances on shows including "Murder, She Wrote", "Promised Land" and "The Young and the Restless". His "Touched by an Angel" co-star Valerie Bertinelli has since taken to her Twitter.com page to pay tribute to Dye, writing, "Dear, sweet John Dye, rest in peace."
The cause of death has not been determined, medical examiner's investigator Charles Cecil said, but relatives said Dye suffered apparent heart failure. A spokeswoman for E.E. Pickle Funeral Home in Amory said funeral arrangements were incomplete.
