Star Wars superfan Daniel Fleetwood has died only days after Disney and J.J. Abrams granted his wish to see The Force Awakens early. Needless to say, we are so glad that everything came together in time for him to enjoy that moment. R.I.P. Daniel.
His wife posted the news on Facebook:
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.
Condolences from the Star Wars: TFA cast have started to trickle in…
