The news of his death was confirmed on social media by his brother and comedian Larry Wilmore.

He said, “My sweet sweet brother, Marc Edward Wilmore, passed away last night while battling COVID and other conditions that have had him in pain for many years. My brother was the kindest, gentlest, funniest, lion of an angel I’ve ever known. I love you, little brother.”

Fellow Simpsons writer Michael Price paid tribute to the deceased, saying, “Another giant talent taken too soon. I had the privilege to work alongside Marc Wilmore on three 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.”

Wilmore joined The Simpsons writing staff in 2002 and won an Emmy as the producer for the episode “Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind”.
