Tragic Passing of “Alf” Child Actor Benji Gregory

It is with great sad­ness that we report the untime­ly pass­ing of for­mer “Alf” child star Ben­ji Gre­go­ry. The 46-year-old actor was found unre­spon­sive in a Chase Bank park­ing lot in Peo­ria, Ari­zona last month.

Cause of Death Still Pending

Accord­ing to reports, Gre­go­ry’s sis­ter Rebec­ca con­firmed his death on Wednes­day. The Mari­co­pa Coun­ty Med­ical Exam­in­er’s office lists Gre­go­ry’s date of death as June 13. The cause of his death is still pend­ing investigation.

Gregory’s Struggles with Mental Health

Sources close to Gre­go­ry sug­gest that the actor was bat­tling depres­sion, bipo­lar dis­or­der, and a severe sleep dis­or­der that would often keep him awake for days at a time. It is believed that Gre­go­ry may have fall­en asleep in his car at the bank and suc­cumbed to heat­stroke due to the Ari­zon­a’s intense sum­mer weather.

The Loss of Gregory’s Service Dog

Trag­i­cal­ly, Gre­go­ry’s beloved ser­vice dog Hans also died in the car along­side him. The two were insep­a­ra­ble, and Gre­go­ry’s fam­i­ly has asked that any dona­tions made in his mem­o­ry be direct­ed to ani­mal wel­fare orga­ni­za­tions like the ASPCA that he would have supported.

Remembering Gregory’s Acting Legacy

Gre­go­ry rose to fame as a child actor, star­ring as Bri­an Tan­ner on the pop­u­lar NBC sit­com “Alf” from 1986 to 1990. He also had guest roles on shows like “The A‑Team” and “The Twi­light Zone” dur­ing the 80s. After step­ping away from Hol­ly­wood in 2003 to enlist in the U.S. Navy, Gre­go­ry lived a qui­eter life until his untime­ly passing.
