David Labrava shared some tragic news with his fans recently. The actor revealed that his son had committed suicide.


Labrava shared the news via Instagram on May 9, 2018. His son had taken his life on May 5, 2018.

Labrava, a star on the Sons of Anarchy, revealed that Tycho, his son, was only 16 at the time of his death. He shared on his Instagram post that he never thought he’d ever have to post such a message.

The star revealed that Tycho had suffered from a depression that they hadn’t noticed. Labrava said his son had always appeared to be a happy child.


He urged his fans and followers to communicate with their loved ones as there might not be any signs. The actor pleaded with his fans to also cherish them.

Since the incident occurred a GoFundMe page has been created in the boy’s memory. The page revealed that Tycho Spelis Chiusano had suffered quietly from depression for years and didn't know how to ask for help.

‘This is my boy Tycho. He took his life a couple of days ago at 16 years old.’

He was said to be an amazing and beautiful soul. Tycho was intelligent, athletic, loyal, and a sensitive friend according to the page.


What made his family miss his struggle with depression was probably the fact that he was full of life, constantly smiling, and made others laugh. This was how his family now chose to remember him.


The page shared that ‘Tycho's last wish was 'give all of my money to a depression and bipolar organization.' Therefore, the money raised on the page will be donated to a worthy organization.

The family asked that people join them in their fight to raise awareness of the signs of depression. They asked fans to honor their friends because it was never known what was hiding behind someone's smile.

All the donations and Tycho's money will be given to a depression and bipolar organization.
