“I loved this guy. Cannot believe he is gone. Such a wonderful, funny good man. Thinking of him and his family and sending all my love. A true great sweetheart of a person,” Sandler wrote on Instagram with a still of Musser in the film.

Musser played the role credited as Water Park Stud in one of the memorable scenes from the film, which included Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello and Joyce Van Patten. As the guys take the kids to a water slide, the ladies stay back to enjoy some downtime. They soon see a buff man looking their way and starts walking towards them.

“Hey, what’s up ladies,” the stud says in a high-pitched voice that takes the women aback. “I’m from Sascatchatoon! That’s up in Canada, eh? You American ladies ever been up to Sascatchatoon?”

The ladies erupt in laughter with Rudolph’s Deanne adding, “Everything was on steroids except for his voice.”
