Negron was a talented actor and appeared in many popular TV series including Seinfeld, Friends, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Party of Five. Some of his film credits include Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Punchline, The Last Boy Scout and Stuart Little.
The actor's death was confirmed by his cousin, Three Dog Night band member Chuck Negron, who took to YouTube to share an emotional tribute about the late star.
"I want to inform you that my cousin, Taylor Negron, just passed away. His mother, his brother Alex, my brother Rene and his wife... were all there with him. May he rest in peace. I just wanted all you people who knew him and loved him to know that he just passed," Chuck said in the video.
Chuck is not the only person to pay tribute to the late star, though, as Ben Stiller, Billy Crystal, James Franco, Kathy Griffin and Whoopi Goldberg — who says she is better because of him — have also reacted to the news of his passing.
