According to a post by Dana Carvey on social media, his son Dex died from an accidental drug overdose.
Our beloved son, Dex, died of an accidental drug overdose, He was 32 years old.
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.
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.
To anyone struggling with addiction or who loves someone struggling with addiction, you are in our hearts and prayers.
