Some sad news from the OC Register:
Hundreds of Disney cast members are spending their first Tuesday at work without a beloved and perennial guest.
Nicki Fotia, 26, of Anaheim, a former cast member at Disneyland, called Around Disney this afternoon to report that Timothy Storms, 48, of Huntington Beach – known around Disneyland as “Mr. Tuesday” – killed himself over the weekend.
Storms spent every Tuesday for years up until this week at the park said Fotia, who worked at Disneyland from late 2002 through 2006. He visited with cast members, took their photos and passed on the photos to the cast members.
“I saw that man hundreds of times,” Fotia said. “Even when I was pregnant and not in costume, he recognized me. I wish I knew why he committed suicide, he was always so friendly and happy.”
Orange County Deputy Coroner Mitchell Sigal confirmed this afternoon that Storms’ body was found Saturday with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
More details to come.
