Joshua Ryan "Josh" Evans was born January 10, 1982. He debuted in Baby Geniuses in 1999 and even got a role in Jim Carrey's Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. On the day he passed, a previously taped episode of him on Passions, in which his character also passed, aired. On August 5, 2002, Evans died during a medical procedure in San Diego from complications related to a congenital heart condition. The death scene Evans had previously taped for Passions aired the same day that he died; the episode was dedicated to him. The character of Timmy was intended to become an angel and remain a presence on the show, but this entire storyline was quickly rewritten after Evans' death to excise the character (although one already-filmed scene was eventually aired, showing Timmy in Heaven, as a sort of coda).
