'The Howard Stern Show' wack packer, ​Eric 'The Actor' Lynch, has passed away at age 39, his long-time manager, Johnny Fratto, confirmed in a tweet on Sunday.

A hospital official confirmed to TMZ that Eric was rushed to a hospital in Sacramento, Calif., on Sept. 20 after he began having heart problems, following which his organs gave out.

Eric had been calling into Stern's radio show since 2002, eventually becoming a member of the comedian's "wack pack," a group of personalities frequently heard on the show.

According to TMZ, he most recently appeared on the show last week, an appearance during which he said his parents would be taking over as full-time caretakers.

Though Eric nor the staff ever explained Eric's medical condition, Eric frequently mentioned that he had lived doctors' expectations.

The radio personality was best known for antics like yelling at Howard as well as his 'love-hate' relationship with Stern's staff, who called him "Eric the Midget."

Eric also made acting appearances on "In Plain Sight" and "Fringe."

Fratto said that Eric was surrounded by those closest to him when he passed, TMZ reports.
