Sidney Eddie Mosesian, better known as Sid Haig, an American actor, film producer, and musician has passed away at the age of 80.

The actor was well known for his role as Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie’s trilogy ‘House of 1,000 Corpses,’ ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ and ‘3 From Hell.’

Haig’s wife, Susan L. Oberg, announced his passing in an emotional Instagram post, holding the hand of her husband.

“On Saturday, September 21, 2019, my light, my heart, my true love, my King, the other half of my soul, Sidney, passed from this realm on to the next. He has returned to the Universe, a shining star in her heavens. He was my angel, my husband, my best friend and always will be,” the statement reads.

According to a post on Haig’s official Instagram account, the actor was admitted to the hospital a few weeks ago after suffering a “nasty spell,” Louder reported.

The actor was later admitted to the ICU following serious breathing complications and was kept under observation, according to the outlet.
