He played the adorable Geoffrey Barone on “Everybody Loves Raymond” and sadly Sawyer Sweeten took his own life on Thursday (April 23).
The 19-year-old actor, best known for his role as one of Ray Romano’s twins, was at his home in Texas when he walked outside, put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger.
Sawyer’s sister/co-star Madylin Sweeten told Gossip Cop, “This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred. We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life. He was weeks away from his 20th birthday. At this sensitive time, our family requests privacy and we beg of you to reach out to the ones you love.” Ray Romano added, “I’m shocked, and terribly saddened, by the news about Sawyer. He was a wonderful and sweet kid to be around. Just a great energy whenever he was there. My heart breaks for him, his family, and his friends during this very difficult time.”
