Former Mickey Mouse Club Star Marque 'Tate' Lynche Died of Chronic Alcoholism, Officials Say
The star died in December
The cause of death for Marque “Tate” Lynche, who was a member of the All New Mickey Mouse Club, has been released by the New York City Chief Medical Examiner.
Lynch, who died Dec. 6 at age 34, died from “acute and chronic alcoholism,” a public information officer at the medical examiner’s office confirmed to PEOPLE.
In December, Lynche’s former costar on the All New Mickey Mouse Club Dale Godboldo remembered the star in a statement to PEOPLE:
“Knowing Marque during the MMC days – as my little brother – I knew he was hugely talented with a passion for the arts, and a passion for life,” Godboldo said. “But it was more recently while collaborating on an MMC related project that I got to know Marque as a man.
“He was so excited to be a part of something that would encourage young people to pursue their dreams and a life of purpose. Marque was a beautiful spirit, that although had endured so much, only wanted to spread love and inspiration. I’ll miss you man. I know you’re flying with angels. RIP.”
