The California native’s family have said he suffered from seizures relating to his epilepsy.
Just days ago, it was revealed that he was cremated and his ashes were given to his father Victor Boyce, 57.
I hope that no one ever has to feel the agony I’m feeling but no one is immune to tragedy, he wrote July 10. 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.
His father has since announced the establishment of The Cameron Boyce Foundation. It seeks to provide young people with ‘artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity.’
