May 11 (UPI) — Former Sons of Anarchy star David Labrava announced on Instagram that his 16-year-old son Tycho Spelis Chiusano has 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,” the actor said on Thursday alongside a collection of photos of himself with 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,” he continued.
Labrava also posted a link to a GoFundMe page created by Catherine Spelis Francini that is raising money that will be donated to a mental health charity.
“Tycho’s last wish was to ‘give all of my money to a depression and bipolar organization’ so, that’s exactly where it’s going!” the page says. The campaign has raised over $10,000 out of its set goal of $10,575.
Labrava portrayed Happy Lowman on FX’s Sons of Anarchy.
