“He died peacefully in the arms of his family who loved and adored him,” the statement added. “He fought with incredible bravery for the past year and maintained his wicked wit and humor to the very end.”
Cormac was a guitarist and a composer. He also worked on the 2020 film “New Order” as a producer, the outlet noted.
In July, the son of the “Reservoir Dogs” star shared news about his cancer diagnosis in 2021 in a post on Instagram, noting that it seemed no matter what he threw at it, the cancer was progressing.

“Since then I’ve been fighting it daily, throwing everything I can at it,” Cormac wrote. “Chemo, high dose chemo, medication, transplants, transfusions, surgeries, etc. It is called Choriocarcinoma, it is rare, and it has managed to stay many steps ahead of me no matter what I throw at it.”
“It has taken away half of my hearing, 60 pounds of weight, my confidence, and will continue its murderous path until I can manage to stop it some how and kill it,” he added. “But it hasn’t taken away my will to survive, or my love of making music. It hasn’t taken me down yet.”
“If you or someone you love is effected by cancer, please feel free to reach out for it is an emotional rollercoaster unlike anything else,” Roth’s son continued. “Love to you all please make sure to do the things that you love. Life is short. It is chaos. And you never know when it’s going to be you. Be well and go to the doctor. F*** cancer.”
