“Closing night we suffered a hideous tragedy,” he and wife Paula Zwagerman wrote in a joint divulge Nov. 16. “Dex packed a lot into those 32 years. He become extraordinarily talented at so many things—music, artwork, movie making, comedy—and pursued all of them passionately.”

The couple—who also share son Thomas Carvey, 30—persevered in their tribute, “It’s no longer exaggeration to bid that Dex cherished existence. And whereas you had been with him, you cherished existence too. He made all the pieces stress-free. However most of all, he cherished his family, his guests and his girlfriend, Kaylee.” 

After noting they’ll miss their son “without end,” the pair ended by announcing that others fighting addiction are in their “hearts and prayers.”  

Based mostly entirely mostly on media coverage of the tragedy, Dana shared a photo of his eldest son in a separate put up, writing, “F–k the tabloids. Right here’s my boy.”

Paula, who tied the knot with the actor in 1983, commented, “Our exquisite boy,” to which the Saturday Night Live alum replied with a heart.
