His death comes two months after a GoFundMe account was set up in July in an effort to fund his battle. The page revealed at the time that one year into Turk's battle, the cancer had become terminal.

"Just over a year ago our dear friend, Brian Turk, was diagnosed with cancer," the page read. "Being the selfless and private person that he is, Brian kept this quiet so as not to concern his family and friends. Unfortunately, the cancer has now become terminal."
