Chuy Bravo has unexpectedly died at the age of 63.
The actor/entertainer has starred on Chelsea Lately as Handler’s right hand man and the two’s friendship ran deep.
After news of his death, Handler, 44, created a tribute via social media to honor his time here.
“I loved this nugget in a big way, and I took great pleasure in how many people loved him as much as I did and do. @chuybravo gave us so much laughter and I’ll never forget the sound of his laughter coming from his office into mine,” Handler posted.
“Or his ‘business calls’ with his ‘business manager,’ or his shoe rack with all his children-sized shoes,” she went on. “I’ll never forget him coming to Christmas with my family one year in the Florida keys, and when my niece who was 5 or 6 at the time—saw him, she ran in the other direction saying she was scared. My sister and I were mortified and were apologizing to Chuy, who told us, ‘it’s ok, lots of little kids get scared when they see big kids coming their way.’ I love you, Chuy!”
