Harris Wittels, an executive producer and writer on Parks and Recreation, was found dead in his home today. You probably recognize Wittels from his small but fantastically memorable role on the show as Harris, the Animal Control flunky.

Wittels, who was only 30 years old, was found by his assistant after a call about a possible overdose. In addition to Parks and Recreation, he was also a stand-up comedian, a writer for a number of shows including The Sarah Silverman program, and the writer of the book Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty, based on his @Humblebrag Twitter account. Based on the outpouring from his friends and coworkers on Twitter, he was also an all-around awesome guy and will be missed tremendously.
