Disney star Cameron Boyce’s parents are sharing their heartbreak over their 20-year-old son’s recent death.

In a statement, Libby and Victor Boyce said: “There are no words to describe how moved we are by the tremendous outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, and the world. Thank you, everyone, for encircling us with your love and respect of Cameron and concern for our family. 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.”

Despite feeling shattered by his death, they vowed to carry on his legacy.

“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,” they continued. “He was and is, so cherished and we will hold him in our hearts forever. He is our shooting star.”


They also acknowledged that his death “was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy.”

According to a press release, Boyce was found unresponsive in his North Hollywood home in the early afternoon of July 6. An autopsy was performed Monday and the official cause of death was deferred pending “further investigation.”
