His family released a statement to Variety on Monday to thank fans for their support, "We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words about our son and brother. We are so grateful for everyone who loved Tim's music and have precious memories of his songs. Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honor Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world."
The message continued, "We are grateful for the privacy during this difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way."
The Swedish musician was best known for his hits like “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother.”
He retired from live performing in 2016 due to his health. The star suffered from acute pancreatitis, a condition that can be caused by alcohol. Avicii was forced to cancel shows in 2014 while he had his gallbladder and appendix removed.
The 2017 film "Avicii: True Stories" gives fans an inside look at the star's life, intense relationship with fame, as well as his health problems.
