Dana Carvey and wife announce death of 32-year-old son due to 'accidental drug overdose'

Dex Carvey died at just 32 years old, according to a statement shared on social media by actor and comedian Dana Carvey. The statement is attributed to "Dana & Paula," a reference to Dana Carvey and Paula Zwagerman, Dex Carvey's parents. They are also the parents of Thomas Carvey.

Their son died due to "an accidental drug overdose," the couple noted.

"Dex packed a lot into those 32 years. He was extremely talented at so many things--music, art, film making, comedy--and pursued all of them passionately," they wrote. "It's not an exaggeration to say that Dex loved life. 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. We will miss him forever," they continued. "To anyone struggling with addiction or who loves someone struggling with addiction, you are in our hearts and prayers."

Dana Carvey is known for his work on "Saturday Night Live," as well as his roles in the movies "Wayne's World" and "The Master of Disguise."

He shared a photo and wrote, "F*** the tabloids. This is my boy."

He also shared another photo along with the description, "Dex and me working together. What a joy."

Many on social media offered their condolences on the devastating loss.

"I lost my 34 year old daughter to Fentanyl. My heart aches for you and your family," someone wrote in response to Carvey's post on Instagram. "I'm so sorry for your loss."
