Carl Ruiz, Food Network Star, Dies at 44Carl Ruiz, celebrity chef who regularly appeared on Guy Fieri’s Food Network shows, died Saturday at the age of 44, according to a statement from his New York restaurant, La Cubana.

“”He was a mighty force of down home Cuban cuisine, and lived life to the fullest, just as he cooked–with ‘dancing always’ as the most important ingredient,” read the restaurant’s statement.

Ruiz was a regular on three of Guy Fieri’s shows: “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” “Guy’s Grocery Games,” and “Guy’s Ranch Kitchen,” and was good friends with many of Food Network’s stars. Fieri expressed his condolences on Twitter, along with other Food Network chefs.

I’m heartbroken that my friend chef Carl Ruiz is gone,” Fieri wrote. “I have no words to describe what a great friend he was to me and my family. His ability to make me laugh and smile under any circumstances was only outshined by his talent as a chef.”

“Over the years, I’ve met a lot of great people but a friend like Carl is one in a hundred million. Carl ‘The Cuban’ Ruiz will forever live on in my heart and in those of all who loved him.”https://twitter.com/jettila/status/1175774489147133952

This man was somehow fatherly, comforting, wise, reckless, brilliant, wickedly funny & unique all in 1. My life will be lonelier without him. Love you Carl. I’ll make sure no one puts pineapple on pizza best I can without you here. ????#rip @carlruiz pic.twitter.com/zgzVX1xlhy
