The tragic news was shared by his family through a GoFundMe page that Jacob "Turtle" Colyer, a friend and fellow wrestler, set up to help cover the cost of the funeral services.

According to Colyer, Lee drew his last breath on Wednesday, September 9, at his home and the GoFundMe was created to "give the Psycho Dwarf the best resting place possible."

"Puppet has put smiles on people's faces across the world with his hardcore attitude and lifestyle. He is a legend in the art of Midget Wrestling."

It has been reported that Lee started his pro wrestling career on the pay-per-view series "NWA: Total Nonstop Action" back in 2002 before creating the Half-Pint Brawlers organization, which found its way to Spike TV in 2010.

The star also had quite a few successes on the big screen, starring as himself in Johnny Knoxville's "Jackass 3D" in 2010 and working alongside James Franco in "Oz: The Great and Powerful" in 2013.
