7th Heaven actor Lorenzo Brino has passed away at the age of 21. 

The child actor was killed last Monday when he lost control of his Toyota Camry and hit a pole, TMZ reports.

He was the only person in the vehicle.

A friend of Brino’s has made a tribute video, calling the 21-year-old a “beautiful soul”.


Lorenzo’s aunt, Janet Brino shared: “To my dear sweet nephew, your loss left a hole in my heart. God needed another Angel and he took you. Please watch over your mom and dad. You sister Mimi, brothers, Antonio, Zachary and Nicholas… You got a big job up there.”


Brino’s sister Mimi also shared a special tribute to her brother: “To my amazing and crazy brother. You might be gone but it’s true when people say ‘gone but never forgotten’. Saying that you were a blessing is an understatement. You brought light to so many lives and you did so much with the too short of a life that you had.

“I had the privilege of growing up side by side with you for an absolutely wild 21 years. Believe me when I say that you drove me so insane at times, but you were also a part of some of my most cherished memories. I am so so happy to know that I was beyond loved by you and that I forever have a guardian angel by my side.

“Rest In Peace Lorenzo, I love you now and I’ll love you forever.”

Brino was on 7th Heaven from 1999 to 2007 where he played Sam Camden.
