He wrote, tagging his former co-stars, “This morning Winnie woke me with the heartbreaking news of Adam Rich’s passing. I’m gutted. Adam was more than a colleague. He was very much my only little brother. A lifelong friend. These last few years Adam had dreams of renewing his career. He was one of those kid actors that our generation will always remember.”

He continued, “I can’t tell you how many parents have told me they named their first child “Nicolas” after his “Eight Is Enough” character. The diminishing fraternity of kids that grew up in the golden years of family television has lost another of our own. I will miss him deeply. Rest “A.R.” – You were the cutest TV kid of them all. #Adamrich #eightisenough #kidactor #TVicon #heartbroken😞😞😞
