LOS ANGELES, CA — The following is a statement from the Sherak family regarding the death of former Academy President Tom Sherak.

“To the entertainment community,

With broken hearts we want to share with you the news that Tom Sherak passed away today after a long 12 year battle with prostate cancer.  He died at home surrounded by his family giving him hugs, kisses, and love.

Tom is, was, and always will be, our loving husband, daddy, papa, brother, friend, and “Go to Guy.”  He blessed this earth for 68 incredible years, and he will be missed every single day.

Tom lived his life as an open book.  He opened his heart and let the world in, and anyone who was lucky enough to know him knew firsthand the power of his love.  He gave everything he had to help others, regardless of whether or not he knew them.  Tom is a true hero in our lives who has a star on the sidewalk and wings to fly.

We love him so very much.”
