We associate Sylvester Stallone with the strong and courageous Rocky he portrayed on film. Nothing seems to be able to break this man. However, life is an unpredictability that can knock even the strongest and most resilient man out. Sylvester was in a lot of agony after his eldest son died. Sage died in 2012, at the age of 36.
At the time, Stallone requested media and fans to be empathetic to their loss and to honor his son’s memory. Sylvester, who did not long for his firstborn son, has been rocked by this huge loss. Sage died of a heart attack, as you may recall. Stallone and Sage’s mother were divorced, but their mutual tragedy brought them closer.
Following the tragedy, they were frequently seen together. Sage planned to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious father. They even appeared in the film Rocky 5. The happy father who built a bond with his abused kid, who couldn’t forgive him after his divorce from his mother, and who couldn’t think that life would soon split them forever.
Stallone remained mute for a long period, refusing to comment on the family’s pain. “Losing my son is my worst loss,” Stallone would shortly say.
No anguish, believe me, compares to the pain of losing a kid. Sylvester also stated that you must be able to move on after a loss or you would wind up in a vicious spiral. To the delight of admirers, the adored “Rocky” was able to conquer the pain and continue to live and create.
