Rickson Williams, 21, from Queensland, Australia, died suddenly on January 11 while he was sleeping.
He was the town’s school captain and had just days left to celebrate his 22nd birthday.
His mother, Tonya Wright, said that doctors discovered that his heart had enlarged after his death.
On the day of his death, Ms Wright posted a tribute on Facebook, which was very emotional.
She said that her son was an aspirational individual who was always the center of the party.
Everyone who knew him knew how much he meant to her and their family.
Rickson had just started his college application process and was planning on studying for a bachelor’s degree in music.
According to Ms Wright, they do not yet know why he died, but they suspect that his enlarged heart was a contributing factor.
To help the family with the costs of his death, a fundraising page has been set up on the website Gofundme.com.
Rickson was a vastly different person from the difficulties he encountered a few years ago.
He was a passionate individual who would do anything for anyone.
The support that the Gofundme page has allowed the family to receive will help them give him the farewell that he deserved.
It will also help them get through the difficult time of mourning.
