‘SNL’ Alum Dana Carvey’s Son Dex Carvey Dies at 32
Dana Carvey shared some sad news on Instagram. His oldest son, Dex Carvey, passed away at the age of 32 after an accidental drug overdose. Carvey shares Dex and another son, Thomas, with his wife, Paula Zwagerman, whom he has been married to since 1983.
Dex had been following in his father’s footsteps and was pursuing a comedy career as well. He opened up for his dad’s Dana Carvey: Straight White Male, 60, along with his brother, Thomas. He also reportedly co-founded the Third Wheel Comedy Club in Los Angeles.
Carvey and Zwagerman shared a joint statement that read, “Last night we suffered a terrible tragedy. Our beloved son, Dex, died of an accidental drug overdose. He was 32 years old. Dex packed a lot into those 32 years. He was extremely talented at so many things — music, art, film making, comedy — and pursued all of them passionately.”
“It’s not an exaggeration to say that Dex loved life. And when you were with him, you loved life too. He made everything fun. But most of all, he loved his family, his friends and his girlfriend, Kaylee,” Carvey and Zwagerman’s statement continued. “Dex was a beautiful person. His handmade birthday cards are a treasure. We will miss him forever. To anyone struggling with addiction or who loves someone struggling with addiction, you are in our hearts and prayers.”
