Cormac Roth has died aged 25 after being diagnosed with cancer.
The son of actor Tim Roth passed away following a battle with stage three germ cell cancer, his family announced in a statement on Monday afternoon.
Cormac’s family said he was ‘irreplacable’ and remembered him as a ‘electric ball of energy’ who was as kind as he was wild.’
His family said: ‘He was a wild and electric ball of energy and his spirit was filled with light and goodness. As wild as he was, Cormac was also the embodiment of kindness.
‘A gentle soul who brought so much happiness and hope to those around him. The grief comes in waves, as do the tears and laughter, when we think of that beautiful boy across the 25 years and 10 months that we knew him.
‘An irrepressible and joyful and wild and wonderful child. Only recently a man. We love him. We will carry him with us wherever we go.’
The musician first revealed his diagonsis in an Instagram post in November 2021 as he revealed he had lost his hearing in one ear and a drastic amount of weight.
He wrote at the time: ‘It has taken away half of my hearing, 60 pounds of weight, my confidence, and will continue its murderous path until I can manage to stop it some how, and kill it.’
‘But it hasn’t taken away my will to survive, or my love of making music. It hasn’t taken me down yet. If you or someone you love is effected by cancer, please feel free to reach out for it is an emotional rollercoaster unlike anything else.
‘Love to you all please make sure to do the things that you love. Life is short. It is chaos. And you never know when it’s going to be you. Be well and go to the doctor. Fuck cancer.’
Cormac was a graduate of Bennington College, as well as a talented guitarist, composer and producer.
