The father of late Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce took to Instagram to share the last photo he took of his son.
As Victor Boyce wrote on his personal Instagram account, the photo was taken just hours before the 20-year-old’s sudden and unexpected passing on July 6.
The grieving father wrote:
My son. Just hours before he was snatched from our lives. I miss him terribly. I hope that no one ever has to feel the agony I’m feeling but no one is immune to tragedy. The outpouring of love and support our family continues to receive is so beautiful and appreciated. Thank you all for helping us through our worst possible situation.
Over 15,500 people reached out to Victor in the comments section.
Many of those people include the fellow actors and actresses that Cameron has worked with over the years. His “Descendents” co-star, Dove Cameron, wrote:
i love you and your whole family so much and forever. there was life before this, and now life after this. my thoughts have not left you and they will stay with you.
Cameron passed away from a seizure in his sleep that was “a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy.”
In a previous statement, Victor and Cameron’s mom, Libby, said their son was the “very definition of human kindness.” The statement continued, in part:
He was the very definition of human kindness, and a light that will forever shine as his spirit lives on in all who knew and loved him. He was the rock of our family and he always had a positive, heartwarming, insightful and caring outlook on everything and everyone.
The pain we have endured and are continuing to endure is indescribable, but we are making every effort to move forward and ensure that Cameron’s legacy and all that he stood for is honored. He was and is, so cherished and we will hold him in our hearts forever. He is our shooting star.
Cameron leaves behind his parents, and a younger sister, Maya.
Maya has not yet commented publicly on Cameron’s passing.
