Daniel Fleetwood had his last wish granted last week when Disney gave him a screening of the unfinished rough cut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The 32-year-old was suffering a rare and aggressive cancer called spindle cell sarcoma and back in July, doctors had given him just two months to live.
His wife Ashley announced Fleetwood’s death on Facebook on Tuesday.
“Daniel put up an amazing fight to the very end. He is now one with God and with the force. He passed in his sleep and in peace. He will always be my idol and my hero. Please hug uncle Marc for me and give Lucy lots of kisses. Rest in peace my love. This was the last selfie we ever took together. #forcefordaniel,” she wrote.
A social media campaign was launched to persuade Disney to allow the saga’s biggest fan to see it. The hashtag #ForceForDaniel trended and director J.J. Abrams called Fleetwood himself to tell him the good news.
