Sons of Anarchy star David Labrava is in mourning after he revealed that his 16-year-old son, Tycho Spelis Chiusano had passed away.
On Wednesday, May 9, the actor who starred as Happy Lowman on the hit series, shared that Tycho had taken his own life after a battle with depression.
“Never in a million tears would I think I would be posting this. This is my boy Tycho. He took his life a couple of days ago at 16 years old,” Labrava began his post that was shared with several pictures of him and his son. “He suffered from a depression we couldnt see because he was a happy young kid. Communicate with your loved ones, there might not be any signs. Cherish them…I am broken…#gofundme.com/flyhighTYCHO.”
On the Go Fund Me page that Labrava shared in honor of Tycho, the actor shared more information about his devastating loss. “On May 5th, 2018 Tycho Spelis Chiusano decided to end his life. He was 16 years old. He quietly suffered from depression for years and didn’t know how to ask for help,” the page reads.
“An amazing and beautiful soul, Tycho was extremely intelligent, athletic, loyal, and a sensitive friend. He was full of life, constantly smiling, and had a knack for making others laugh. Tycho loved his family and friends. This is how we will forever remember him!” it continues. “Never FORGET: Always be kind and have compassion for others. Never spread rumors and learn to communicate with each other.”
It adds, “Tycho’s last wish was ‘give all of my money to a depression and bipolar organization,’ …so, that’s exactly where it’s going! Please join us in our fight to raise awareness of the signs of depression! We need to honor our friends because we never know what’s hiding behind someone’s smile. “
