Dustin Diamond best know for Screech on Saved by the Bell died today of cancer.
I was a little older when the show came out so I didn’t really watch it but I knew what it was all about.
During college one of my jobs was at a mom and pop video game store where Dustin would frequent. He was a popular kid actor with some extra scratch burning a hole in his pocket so he was a big Neo Geo fan. He also enjoyed all the other 16 bit platforms as well. I can’t tell you the words that would come out of his mouth every time he would lose at Super Nintendo Street Fighter II when it was first released.
The times he came in to get his video game fix I got to know him a little and he seemed like a good kid at heart. It really is a shame he had to die so young. “F” cancer and rest in peace Dustin.
