Tim Roth and farewell to son Cormac

"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 Roth family's official note continues. Cormac passed away on 16 October, but only now have his family released the news. "Grief comes in waves, as do tears and laughter, when we think of that beautiful boy through the 25 years and 10 months we knew him. An irrepressible and joyful child, wild and wonderful. Only recently a man. We love him. We will take him with us wherever we go".

Cormac's battle

The guitarist was diagnosed with germ cell cancer on 3 November last year. Since then, a battle began that Cormac wanted to share on social media. "I fought daily with everything I could. Chemo, drugs, transplants, transfusions, surgeries etc. It's called Choriocarcinoma, it's rare, and it has managed to stay so many steps ahead of me no matter what I throw at it. It has taken away half my hearing, 27 kilos of weight, my confidence, and will continue on its murderous path until I can somehow stop it, and kill it. But it has not taken away my will to survive, or my love for making music. It hasn't taken me down yet," he wrote on Instagram.

Do the things you love. Life is short

In his latest social post, the musician made an appeal to his followers. An invitation to live life doing what we love because you never know when the end will come. "Please make sure you do the things you love. Life is short. It is chaos. And you never know when it will be your turn. Be well and go to the doctor".
