Prayers are needed for the cast of "Sons of Anarchy." One of the actors of the show, Paul John Vasquez, died Monday night, PEOPLE confirmed. He was 48.

Vasquez is the second person from the biker game drama to passes away in recent months. In June, his co-star Alan O’Neill died at the age of 47.
“This news has come as a surprise to us,” a representative for the actor told PEOPLE. “Our hearts are heavy. He was a kind, creative and loving man. He will be missed.”

Vasquez was found unconscious at his father’s home in San Jose, California, according to TMZ. After arriving at the scene, paramedics were unable to revive the actor.

While his exact cause of death is still under investigation, TMZ reports he appears to have suffered a heart attack.

Vasquez appeared on Sons of Anarchy in 2011. He also acted in the series "CSI: NY," "How I Met Your Mother," "ER," "NYPD Blue," and "21 Jump Street" in 1989. According to IMBD, Vasquez also worked as a writer and producer.

Please pray for Vasquez's family as they mourn his passing. 48 is much too young of an age to pass away, especially so unexpectedly.
