A VERY HELPFUL HAND
While Ronnie enjoyed the spotlight, Todd used to work behind the scenes, helping him with tight schedules, tours, recording projects, music videos and several other obligations.
It has been reported that Ronnie issued a statement following the heart-breaking news, in which he described his son as a "force of joy, life, creativity and giving from the moment he was born."
"He made such a mark on our world in his years on this planet, everyone who met him was richer for it. It is too soon to even understand this loss, and I hope it's something no one has to bear."

Funeral arrangements are expected to be handled by Woodlawn Funeral home but no further details have been shared with the public for the time being.
SAYING GOODBYE TO A LEGEND
Sadly, Todd's family isn't the only one grieving the loss of a loved one. Stanley Donen's family and friends have also been struck by grief upon learning of the 94-year-old's passing.
The iconic director, famous for films such as "Singin' in the Rain" and "Two for the Road," drew his last breath on Thursday, February 21, leaving behind a legacy only a handful have managed to match.
Although he was never nominated for an Academy Award, Donen received a lifetime achievement Oscar back in 1998 for his contribution to the movie industry, as well as the "grace, elegance and visual innovation" of his work.
