'My heart is broken' Cameron Boyce's uncle pays tribute to late nephew

"Words cannot express how sad I am right now."

Cameron Boyce's uncle has paid tribute to his late nephew who passed away last weekend.

The 20-year-old Disney Channel star died last week due to an on-going medical condition for which he had been receiving treatment.

His family confirmed the news on Saturday, saying that they were "utterly heartbroken" by his passing. 

"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," they said.

"We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother."

Cameron's uncle London Boyne has since shared a touching Instagram post in memory of the 20-year-old.

"My heart is broken. I've lost my beloved nephew," he wrote.

"Words cannot express how sad I am right now but Cameron left an indelible mark on all who were blessed to share any moment with him."

"We will miss you with all our hearts Cameron but you will never ever be forgotten. REST IN HEAVEN I LOVE YOU, Uncle Bruh."

Boyce starred in Grown Ups alongside Adam Sandler when he was a child, before being cast in Disney's Jessie and Descendants.
