We’re all still mourning the tragic loss of Cameron Boyce. The Disney Channel actor passed away after suffering a seizure in his sleep on July 6, 2019. He was only 20 years old at the time, and the entire world — including his fans, family, friends, costars and other celebrities — were heartbroken over the devastating loss. Now, his parents are opening up about how they’re coping with his sad passing and who their son truly was.
“The night he passed away, we were out to dinner with him just hours before. It was a completely normal, beautiful family night out to dinner,” his dad, Victor, recalled on Good Morning America. “There was no indication that anything was wrong. I mean there was no way to know in hours my son would be dead. Like, it was just staggeringly crazy and horrible. And we were texting that night. We were texting back and forth up until 12:30 and somewhere between the last text he sent me and the morning, he was gone.”
“Cameron had his first seizure at 16 [years old],” his mom, Libby, explained. “He only ever had five seizures, and the fifth one is the one that he died from. If I ever thought that he could die from a seizure I would have never let him out of my sight.”
But his mom added that he never let the disease define him.
“He wasn’t scared. He never complained about anything,” Victor said.
