Mallorca Lee shared heartbreaking final picture with wife and kids before death
Mallorca Lee shared a heartbreaking final picture with his wife and kids just weeks before his tragic death.
The Ultra Sonic frontman passed away on Sunday afternoon, aged 51. The news came after the founder of the iconic Scottish 90s dance music group revealed last month that he had terminal cancer.
He previously told his fans that he may only have a "matter of months" left after the devastating diagnosis. The DJ's last post on Instagram was a heartbreaking picture with his wife Maria and two kids at Barshaw Park in Paisley.
The family were seen smiling at the camera in the sunshine in the image, which was shared three weeks ago. The caption read: "Hug the ones closest to you and tell them just how much they mean to you and how much you love them."
His family announced his death with a tribute on his official Facebook page on Monday, February 5. They wrote: “We love you infinity, goodbye and safe trip.”
Lee apologised to fans while announcing his terminal illness in a statement in January.
He wrote: “I've been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the doctor said it could be a matter of months. I apologise for not telling all of my family and friends individually, it just breaks my heart a thousand times and I don’t have the strength to go through it all over and over again.
“I love you all, the last 10 years have been the best of them all, it really has been wonderful. “Forgive me if I don’t answer your calls and messages, I’m still processing, even this post feels like someone else is writing it…
“Love, that’s all we ever really have, our one true currency, so tell the ones around you what they mean to you, every day. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Mall.”
Hundreds of heartfelt tributes have begun pouring in for the frontman from fans, friends and fellow artists. DJ Bass Generator wrote: “No words! Absolutely devastating for you to lose such a special soul.”
David Rust added: “RIP Mal, grateful for the guidance over the years and for you just being a genuinely great guy! thoughts go out to your family and friends in this devastating time.”
Chris Connolly said: “Rest in Peace Mallorca. Thinking of your family. The rave community has lost a true legend.”
And Max Di Toro commented: “Mallorca, we only spent a short time together and played 1 gig but your infectious personality was the reason why we kept in touch.
“So glad we got to catch up in Sydney. I’ll play your tunes loud and proud forever! Goodbye my friend, from Darwin, Australia.”
