John Stamos breaks silence after the death of "dearest friend" Jeffrey Foskett

John Stamos has broken his silence after the death of his "dearest friend" Jeffrey Foskett.

The Full House star took to Instagram on Tuesday to pay tribute to the longtime member of The Beach Boys, who passed away on Monday aged 67.

"Today, I lost more than a friend; I lost a part of my soul, my history - Jeffrey Foskett, my dearest friend, brother, and the brightest light in my life, has left this world," John, 60, began. "This morning, when I got the news, uncontrollable tears streamed down my face, a physical manifestation of the heartache within."

In the post, John shared that after he learned of the musician's passing, his five-year-old son, Billy, drew a picture of Jeffery "with hearts ascending to heaven, with me, waving goodbye."

"Jeff was more than just a friend; he was the one who brought the harmonies of The Beach Boys into my life, and with them, a spectrum of color and joy I never dreamed would be part of my life," he continued. "He was a vibrant force, a radiant soul whose laughter and wisdom touched everyone he met. He was an older brother in spirit, guiding, lifting, and loving me, sometimes more than I thought I deserved."

The You actor reflected on Jeffery's "remarkable life" and noted the "excruciating" pain of the loss of his close friend.

John concluded the post, "Yet, when I think of the 40 years we shared - the uproarious laughter, the music that we believed changed lives, and the unshakable bond of brotherhood - I can't help but feel grateful. Grateful for every moment, every note, every piece of wisdom he shared with me."

Jeffrey, who was described as The Beach Boys' "vice principal" by its touring members, passed away after a long battle with anaplastic thyroid cancer. He was diagnosed in 2018 and underwent multiple surgeries.
