We were so sad to first hear the news that former Disney Channel actor Michael Galeota had passed away at only 31 years old. Of course, his friends and family were even more heartbroken about the loss, and honored the actor, who was best known for his role on the series The Jersey, at an emotional funeral over the weekend.
Disney stars like Shia LaBeouf and Haylie Duff, who had known Michael when they were kids, attended the ceremony.
"Today all the people that love #MichaelGaleota are gathered to say goodbye, and to send him off with our deepest love & gratitude for the fact that we were able to call him a friend. RIP Mike," Haylie shared on Instagram along with a throwback pic of their friend circle.
"Love you Mike. #RIP 💐💐," actress Vanessa Chester shared on Instagram along with a photo from the ceremony.
Our hearts go out to Michael's friends and family at this difficult time. Feel free to leave your condolences below.
