Adam Sandler, Bob Iger and More Mourn Cameron Boyce: ‘Far Too Young’

Shock took over social media Sunday as Disney Channel fans paid tribute to “Descendants” star Cameron Boyce, who died Saturday night due to an ongoing medical condition.

Among those remembering the 20-year-old actor was Adam Sandler, who worked with Boyce on the movie ”Grown Ups” and Grown Ups 2.”

“Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and and most decent kid around,” Sandler wrote on Twitter. “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.”

Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger also offered condolences to the actor, who appeared on a number of Disney Channel television shows.

“The Walt Disney Company mourns the loss of Cameron Boyce, who was a friend to so many of us, and filled with so much talent, heart and life, and far too young to die,” Iger wrote. “Our prayers go out to his family and his friends.”

His Disney Channel co-stars looked back fondly at their time working alongside the actor. “Jessie” star Skai Jackson remembered her on-screen brother writing, “I don’t even know where to start… I am at a loss for words. I never thought in a million years I would be writing this.”

She continued, “Cam, you were one of a kind. My heart will be forever broken. I am so happy that I got to spend almost everyday with you on set, you gave the best hugs. I wish I would have hugged you tighter when I saw you a couple of months ago. Thank you so much for being the big brother I never had… I am so distraught and I cannot stop crying! I love you so much… fly high. Gods best Angel.”

Words can not express the feelings I’m having right now. This Little brother of mine @thecameronboyce was a living angel. More talent than one body can hold, more kindness then one could give, and touched more lives than he will ever know. Give people their roses while you can. Don’t let a moment slip by without saying “I Love You”. Don’t let time slip by without saying “Hey!! YOU ARE AWESOME!!”. You just called me to wish me a Happy Birthday, and I’m soooo happy I picked up! Love you lil bro. May you Rest In Peace and know the IMPACT you made in this world will NOT be forgotten! @hollywoodknights fam Lets rep this dude forever! #CB on my jersey from now on! #cameronboyce #restinpeace #rip

Cameron, you were a magnetic superstar with an amazing blend of crazy energy and blissful zen. You’re many talents were undeniably brilliant and often awe inspiring. You were so kind and generous to me and my family. I don’t know that I ever saw you without a beautiful smile on your face. I am honored to have known you and to have worked with you. Rest In Peace. You will be missed.

Darling, sweet Cameron. I find this news unfathomable, that a brilliant light such as yours could be gone. I think immediately of your beautiful smile, your infectious energy and your absolutely boundless talent. You, the baby of the crew, so young they were forever pumpkining you out for ‘fake Carlos’. To have watched you spin your way through these years with kindness and humility and just begin to come into your own…it is cruel and ugly to see that taken away. I send an ocean of love to your family with whom you were so close and who must be drowning in heartache. As a mother I simply cannot comprehend. It is small comfort that at least you shone more brightly in your few years than most do in a lifetime. Dance through the stars, keep shining. I just still cannot believe. ?
