NEW YORK (AP) — "Catastrophe" star and co-creator Rob Delaney says his infant son has died from cancer.

He memorializes the boy as "smart, funny, and mischievous" in a Facebook post .

Delaney says Henry Delaney was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016. After surgery to remove the tumor and treatment early last year, the cancer returned in the fall, and Henry died in January. He was 2½.

Though left with "significant physical disabilities," Henry learned sign language and shuffling from place to place "on his beautiful little bum."
