“My family is sad to share that Avi passed away at 8:30 this morning,” he wrote.
“He will be missed by so many people.
He will be remembered for his unique, warm smile, his love of music, and his incredible family.
Thank you for your love and support.”
His son, Joe Chillis son, also posted on Twitter, thanking fans for their support.
“I’m so glad you are all so excited to hear the news of my dad’s passing.
He was one of the most amazing people to have ever been in our family, and will be deeply missed,” he said.
He also shared that he was “heartbroken” to learn that he will not be able to attend the Oscars this year.
“We are so sad to hear about his passing, but we love him so much and so much will be done in his memory,” Joe Chillifans son said.
“Love you, Avi.”
