‘Charlie Brown’ voice actor Peter Robbins has died at the age of 65.

The Carlsbad, California native took his own life last week according to his family.

Fox 5 San Diego reported:

Carlsbad native Peter Robbins, the voice actor who brought Charlie Brown to life in the Peanuts cartoons from the 1960s, has died, his family told FOX 5. He was 65.

Robbins’ family said he took his own life last week.

FOX 5’s Phil Blauer was a close friend of the voice actor over the past 25 years. He says he had closely followed the voice actor’s ups and downs, from interviewing him in jail because of criminal threats he made against several people, including San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, to speaking with him when he was in rehab battling an addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Robbins started voicing Charlie Brown in 1963 and also in several more Peanuts cartoons. He adored the character so much, he had a tattoo of Charlie Brown and Snoopy on his arm.
