Our hearts are breaking right now, because one of the voices of our childhood has passed away. Actor Jack Riley, who voiced Stu Pickles in Rugrats, died from complications from pneumonia earlier today at age 80, Deadline reports.

You'll know Mr. Riley best as the voice of Tommy and Dil's dad Stu on the series, which he worked on from 1991 to 2005, including the special movies. He also reprised the role for Rugrats: All Grown Up! from 2003-2007.

We thank him so much for being a part of our early Nickelodeon memories, as well as countless other television productions.

Feel free to share your condolences and favorite memories of the show in the comments section below.
