Gabe Khouth, perhaps best known for his role as Sneezy/Tom Clark on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, has died. He was 46.

According to his friend, actor Peter Kelamis, Khouth died on Tuesday after appearing to suffer cardiac arrest while riding his motorcycle.

“Gabe ALWAYS put a smile on everyone’s face,” Kelamis tweeted. “My deepest condolences to his Family and friends RIP — You kind, kind soul #Heartbroken #gonetoosoon.”

In a video, Khouth’s brother Sam said he “went out doing what he loved, and he’s at peace now.”

He also invited fans to pay tribute at the presumed site of the crash in Vancouver, Canada.

“My brother loved to ride,” he said, choking up. “He loved all of you.”

Once Upon a Time co-creator Adam Horowitz remembered Khouth as “a lovely man, a great talent, and an indelible part of [the show] since the beginning. But more importantly, he was our friend. He will be missed.”

Lee Arenberg, who played fellow dwarf Grumpy, tweeted that he was “devastated beyond words,” hailing his TV brother as “sweet and spicy, hilarious and loveable and a pure talent.”
