Sage was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment on July 13. His cause of death remains unknown pending toxicology test results.

"When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain," the 66-year-old Rocky star said in a statement about his son, a filmmaker and actor. "Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha."

Sage's mother asked mourners to make a donation to Autism Speaks rather than sending flowers. Czack and Sylvester's youngest son together, Seargeoh, is autistic. Sage is also survived by his half-sister Sistine, Sophia and Scarlet.
