LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe has paid tribute to Cameron Boyce, who passed away on Saturday (July 6). The actor, known for his roles in the Disney Channel franchise "Descendants" and the TV show "Jessie", was just 20 years old.Blythe shared an Instagram photo of Boyce this morning (Sunday, July 7), along with the following message: "It is with a heavy heart that I must bid this young man, @thecameronboyce, a peaceful journey on his trip to the great beyond. "I met Cameron working in Hollywood- we did some acting together for an upcoming production. Cameron was a Disney child actor, now growing into a young man- he was just 20 years old when he died last night of natural causes due to an ongoing medical condition. "Despite being a famous as a child star, he was as about as down to earth as a person could get, which greatly impressed me- there was absolutely zero sense of entitlement about him. "We had a lot of laughs on set, not mention good talks on the nature & perils of fame. "Cameron was incredibly talented- he could dance, sing, & was a brilliant actor with a great sense of humor & a genuine curiosity about the world- just truly a joy to watch perform. I would watch him on set doing his thing & think 'Man- he's SO GOOD.' Incidentally, his paternal grandmother, Jo Ann (Allen) Boyce, is a Civil Rights icon, one of the first 12 African-Americans to attend an integrated high school in the south, in 1956- I believe that this sort of upbringing lead to his strength of character, & philanthropic nature. "Although he & I came from very different worlds- the Disney scene & the heavy metal music world are pretty much polar opposites- we got along well & I was really looking forward to seeing & working with him again. "I extend my most sincere condolences to Cameron's family & friends. The world needs more socially aware & kind hearted young men, & we certainly lost a good one last night. "I took this photo on set- you can see the kindness in his eyes. "Safe journey, bro- see you on the other side."The cause of Cameron's death was announced as due to "an ongoing medical condition.""It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron," a spokesperson said on behalf of the Boyce family. "He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. 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."We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother."When he was just 11 years old, Boyce appeared in the Adam Sandler movie "Grown Ups" as one of Sandler's children."Too Young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around," Sandler wrote on Twitter earlier today. "Loved that kid. Cared so much about his family. Cared so much about the world. Thank you, Cameron, for all you gave to us. So much more was on the way. All our hearts are broken. Thinking of your amazing family and sending our deepest condolences."
