It added: "He fought with incredible bravery for the past year, and maintained his wicked wit and humour to the very end."

A graduate of Bennington College in Vermont, Roth's passion for music began when he was a child. He went on to become a guitarist, composer and producer, with his family saying his career was "just beginning to flourish".

They added: "He was a wild and electric ball of energy and his spirit was filled with light and goodness. As wild as he was, Cormac was also the embodiment of kindness. A gentle soul who brought so much happiness and hope to those around him.

"The grief comes in waves, as do the tears and laughter, when we think of that beautiful boy across the 25 years and 10 months that we knew him. An irrepressible and joyful and wild and wonderful child. Only recently a man. We love him. We will carry him with us wherever we go."

Cormac is survived by his parents, Tim and Nikki Roth, and his brother, Hunter Roth.
