By

Sons of Anarchy star David Labrava is grieving.

The 55-year-old old actor, who played Happy Lowman on the FX series, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share the devastating news that his son, Tycho, had taken his own life.

Posting a series of sweet photos with his son, Labrava wrote, “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.”

Labrava, who made a recent cameo on Lucifer, opened up about his son’s battle with mental health.

“He suffered from a depression we couldn’t see because he was a happy young kid,” he continued. “Communicate with your loved ones, there might not be any signs. Cherish them. I am broken.”

Labrava also provided the link to a GoFundMe page, which stated: “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 described Tycho as “extremely intelligent, athletic, loyal, and sensitive friend.”

At the time of publication, the page had raised more than $9,000 of its $10,575 goal.
