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. He suffered from a depression we couldnt see because he was a happy young kid. Communicate with your loved ones, there might not be any signs. Cherish them🙏 I am broken 😭 @flyhightycho #gofundme.com/flyhighTYCHO #teensuicide #FlyHighTYCHO #riptycho

“This is my boy Tycho. He took his life a couple of days ago at 16 years old. He suffered from a depression we couldn’t see because he was a happy young kid.
“Communicate with your loved ones, there might not be any signs. Cherish them. I am broken.”
He shared a link to a GoFundMe page set up in Tycho’s honour.
The page reads: “An amazing and beautiful soul, Tycho was extremely intelligent, athletic, loyal, and a sensitive friend.
“He was full of life, constantly smiling, and had a knack for making others laugh.
“Tycho loved his family and friends. This is how we will forever remember him!
“Never FORGET: Always be kind and have compassion for others. Never spread rumours and learn to communicate with each other.
“Tycho’s last wish was ‘give all of my money to a depression and bipolar organisation’.”
So far the page has donations totalling 9,279 US dollars (around £6,282).
