8 Jul – "Too young. Too sweet. Too funny," Adam Sandler posted hours earlier on his Instagram, upon hearing of young actor Cameron Boyce's sudden passing.
"Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around. Loved that kid," Sandler added.
It's been almost six years since their last movie together, "Grown Ups 2", was released but it seems that Sandler still has a soft spot for the Disney star who played his son Keithie in both the 2010 "Grown Ups" and its 2013 sequel.
20-year-old Boyce passed away in his sleep, which a spokesperson on behalf of the Boyce family told ABC News, "was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated."
Apart from Sandler, many others, celebrities and fans alike, expressed their condolences online, including Disney CEO Bob Iger, who paid tribute to the late actor on his Twitter.
