Cormac Roth, the son of British actor Tim Roth, died at the age of 25 after a battle with cancer.
Roth died on October 16, but his death was not made public until Monday.
“He was a wild and electric ball of energy and his spirit was filled with light and goodness,” his family said.
“As wild as he was, Cormac was also the embodiment of kindness. A gentle soul who brought so much happiness and hope to those around him.
“The grief comes in waves, as do the tears and laughter, when we think of that beautiful boy across the 25 years and 10 months that we knew him.
“An irrepressible and joyful and wild and wonderful child. Only recently a man. We love him. We will carry him with us wherever we go.”
Roth, a talented guitarist, composer, and producer, announced on Instagram last November that he had been diagnosed with Stage 3 germ cell cancer.
“In November of 21 I was diagnosed with stage 3 germ cell cancer,” Roth shared on IG.
“Since then I’ve been fighting it daily, throwing everything I can at it. Chemo, high dose chemo, medication, transplants, transfusions, surgeries etc. It is called Choriocarcinoma, it is rare, and it has managed to stay many steps ahead of me no matter what I throw at it.
“It has taken away half of my hearing, 60pounds of weight, my confidence, and will continue its murderous path until I can manage to stop it some how, and kill it.”
“But it hasn’t taken away my will to survive, or my love of making music,” the 25-year-old added. It hasn’t yet defeated me.
“If you or someone you love is effected [SIC] by cancer, please feel free to reach out for it is an emotional rollercoaster unlike anything else.
“Love to you all please make sure to do the things that you love. Life is short. It is chaos.
“And you never know when it’s going to be you. Be well and go to the doctor. F*** cancer.”
