“Dex packed a lot into those 32 years,” the statement continued. “He was extremely talented at so many things — music, art, filmmaking, comedy — and pursued all of them passionately.

“It’s not an exaggeration to say Dex loved life,” the “SNL” alum explained. “And when you were with him, you loved life too. He made everything fun. But most of all, he loved his family, his friends and his girlfriend Kaylee. Dex was a beautiful person.

“His handmade birthday cards are a treasure,” the post continued. “We will miss him forever.”
