Coronji Calhoun Sr, who played Halle Berry’s son Tyrell in the Oscar-winning 2001 film Monster’s Ball, has died at the age of 30.
The actor’s death, from congestive heart failure, was confirmed by his mother via a GoFundMe page that was set up to pay for his funeral.
Berry and Monster’s Ball producer Lee Daniels each donated $3,394.
Calhoun’s mother Theresa C Bailey said the family had been “blown away” by the love and support they had received.
She wrote; “While the financial burden has been lifted, we still mourn the loss of my son,” .
“As we close this chapter, we ask that in your remembrance of him, you remember to love your neighbor as yourself, because that is what Coronji did for his entire community.”
