Goldsmith was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 3. His cancer returned for a fourth time in 2018.

«When I was sick, cooking was the only thing that got me up,» he told Tuscaloosa. «If I was just laying down doing nothing, my feet and legs would hurt, but when I was moving around in the kitchen, I wouldn’t be hurting as much.»

Fuller Goldsmith died on Tuesday. His father, Scott Goldsmith, told the CBS affiliate in Tuscaloosa, «He got tired and was ready to go.»

According to Lucy Bonhaus, Fuller Goldsmith’s lifelong friend, a fund is being established in his memory to help a child attend culinary school, something Goldsmith was unable to do himself. «This was Fuller’s dream,» Bonhaus says. «He made jokes that he was graduating from the ‘school of life,’ and it’s safe to say he aced the course. He even would leave daily reminders on his phone to live life to the fullest.»
