Disney Cast Members do not only help create magic for the Guests that walk through the gates of Disney. They also create magic for their fellow Cast Members who can begin to feel like family. Cast Members can become incredibly close, and losing one can have an enormous impact on the people they worked with.
Unfortunately, the Disney family has lost one of their fellow Cast Members, and a GoFundMe has been set up to help the family that he left behind.
According to the GoFundMe fundraiser information, Sirosh Tanthasiri passed away on Friday, September 3. Here is more information on the sad event from the GoFundMe account.
Early Friday morning heaven gained a sparkling angel. Sirosh Tanthasiri touched so many with his own special ways of making magic. Sirosh always lived life to the fullest. Whether he was dancing down Main St. at Disneyland, working at Chanel, traveling or shopping, he gave it his all. Most importantly, he was always there for anyone who needed him. Whether you were family, a long time friend or a brand new friend, he wanted you to know how important you were. He wanted us all to succeed and be happy. He lived unapologetically. He showed us all that we absolutely have to be present and do what we love most. That’s exactly what Sirosh did!
Sirosh was the sole provider for his Mother, Pam, and for his 100 year old Grandma, Nuanchan. The rest of his family lives in Thailand. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, they will not be able to be here to support them. A few of Sirosh’s closest friends are helping Pam navigate everything that comes from such an unexpected tragedy. Please, if you are able to, consider donating to help them with everything that they will need during this heart breaking time.
Let’s all try to honor Sirosh by living more like he did. Let’s care for, love and encourage others with no strings attached. Let’s not be afraid to do what truly makes us happy. I know he would want us all to be absolutely in love with our lives!
It sounds like Sirosh was an amazing person and the loss is a huge one not only to his own family but to his entire community and the entire Disney family. If you would like to donate to help Sirosh’s family, you can do so by visiting the GoFundMe page or by clicking here.
Please join Inside the Magic in sending our deepest condolences to the family of Sirosh Tanthasiri.
