Marc was added to the writing staff team of The Simpsons for the 13th season.

He won an Emmy award for producing an Outstanding Animated Programme for the episode Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind in 2008.

A vast number of tributes have poured in for the writer since his brother’s heart-breaking announcement:

His co-writer on The Simpson Michael Price penned: “Another giant talent taken too soon. I had the privilege to work alongside Marc Wilmore on 3 shows (PJs, Simpsons, FIFF) for the better part of the last 23 years and he was THE funniest person in every room.

“And a wonderful man. He is irreplaceable. Rest In Peace, my friend.”

F Is For Family producer Henry Gammill shared his tribute too: “I’m devastated by the loss of Marc Wilmore.

“Marc was my favorite – I hung onto his every word. He was empathetic beyond measure, not to mention the funniest one in the room every damn time.

“Warm, genuine, uniquely funny – that was Marc. I love him. It was a joy to be his friend.”

Agent Ford Gilmore shared a heart-warming tribute on social media too:

“Saddened to hear about the passing of Marc Wilmore. Had a couple meetings with him over the years, and he was so genuinely kind, smart, and absolutely hilarious. Rest In Peace.”
