    STEPHEN FURST
    Flounder from 'Animal House'
    DEAD AT 63

    Stephen Furst -- actor and filmmaker known for playing Flounder in 'Animal House' -- has died due to complications from diabetes ... TMZ has learned.

    Stephen's son Nathan tells us ... his father died at his home in Ventura County, CA early Friday morning surrounded by loving friends and family. He and his brother Griff said about their dad ... "He was a beloved husband, father and kind friend whose memory will always be a blessing."

    Furst battled with diabetes for years, and later became a spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association.

    Along with playing Kent 'Flounder' Dorfman in the 1978 comedy classic, he also had starring roles on "Babylon 5" and "St. Elsewhere." He directed a few episodes of 'Babylon 5' as well.
    He was 63.

    I was at Supanova today (Our pokey little comicon) and I was looking through the signed B5 pictures at a stall and said "Wow these are going to get harder and harder to get" That's when the bloke at the stall told me that Stephen had passed this morning.

    I might think there's some weird karma thing going on if I believed in that sort of thing. They accomplished what the set out to do--tell a complete 5-year story--but at the price of the cast dying off young.

    He was not that old, as others of those from B5 who died early. Very sad.

    The cure of B5 continues.. The universe just keeps taking them from us way too soon.
