Cygan died on May 13 at his home in Woodland Hills here after a long battle with cancer, Jonn Wasser of the Atlas Talent Agency told hollywoodreporter.com.

Cygan also starred on the short-lived sitcom “Bob”, which ran from 1992-1993.

On Twitter, Chiklis called Cygan “one of my closest friends in the world. You are loved, adored and horribly missed, Johnny. I know this… heaven just got a lot funnier.”

Cygan also appeared on episodes of “Frasier”, “The X-Files”, “NYPD Blue”, “The Shield” and “Modern Family”.
