Cameron Boyce's Dad Shares Photo of His Son Taken Hours Before His Death

Playing Cameron Boyce Died From a Seizure Due to Epilepsy: Parents

Cameron Boyce's dad shared a photo of his son that was taken just hours before his sudden death, writing, "I miss him terribly."

Victor Boyce posted the photo, which shows the Disney star looking at the camera, to Instagram on Wednesday.

"My son. Just hours before he was snatched from our lives," he wrote alongside the image. "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."

Boyce, who was being treated for epilepsy, died in his sleep after suffering a seizure. He was found unconscious Saturday morning by his roommate, who then called 911. But first responders could not revive Cameron and he was declared dead at the scene. He was just 20.

An autopsy was completed Monday and Boyce’s official cause of death has yet to be determined, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

In a statement, Cameron's family paid tribute to him. 

“The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him," the statement read. "We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.”

Boyce starred on the Disney Channel’s "Descendants" and “Jessie."
