David Labrava‘s 16-year-old son, Tycho, took his own life after a battle with depression, according to the actor.
Labrava, who played Happy on “Sons of Anarchy,” revealed the tragedy to fans on social media last night, writing, “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.”
The exact manner of his death is still unclear, but Labrava said, “He suffered from a depression we couldnt see because he was a happy young kid,” adding, “Communicate with your loved ones, there might not be any signs. Cherish them. I am broken.”
Labrava also shared a GoFundMe page created by a family member. The donation page describes Tycho as “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.”
Labrava’s stepsister shared Tycho’s last wish: “give all of my money to a depression and bipolar organization,” which the family will honor.
