The filmmaker posted:

This touching tribute doesn’t necessarily shock us since the father/son duo were said to be incredibly close — constantly communicating through Skype. We can only imagine how hard this whole situation must be for the 44-year-old.

In a previous interview, Duncan opened up about his childhood with the Space Oddity singer and shared:

“In many ways it was an incredible childhood. We traveled all over the world, we got to do some amazing things.”

The Warcraft director also made sure to praise his poppa in the past as he credited David for all of his success. He noted:

“…he gave me the time and the support to find my feet and the confidence to do what I do.”

Our thoughts are with David’s loved ones during this particularly trying time.
