A much-loved 16-year-old army cadet sergeant has been remembered as a ‘beautiful, kind soul’ after suddenly passing away.

Perth schoolboy Liam Grant, who celebrated his 16th birthday on December 26, ‘unexpectedly passed away’ on Friday.

His mother, Kelly Ann, described her son as the ‘brightest star in the sky’ and said his death had left their family completely ‘grief stricken’.

‘Time stopped forever 19th January 2024 and will never move forward. Ever!’, Ms Grant wrote on social media.

‘It would’ve been then just 24 days ago we celebrated your 16th birthday, just days ago we picked up your car…. we have plans, so many fun things ahead and then in a blink of an eye it all changed our amazing boy Liam Grant passed away.’

She added: ‘Tell us it’s not true. Wake us from this hell torturous place I have no more words to give.’

Liam was promoted to the rank of cadet sergeant after a nine-day intensive training course last July.

On 30 December, his parents surprised him with his first car.  

His final post on Instagram came two days later when he shared pictures with his schoolmates and expressed gratitude for ‘all the friends I made along the way’.

Tributes poured in on social media, with one describing him as a ‘beautiful, kind soul’ and an ‘absolute diamond’. 

‘Liam was the most amazing caring, generous, sensitive, smart, sensible gentleman. Its just shattering,’ wrote another. 

A GoFundMe page, set up by a family friend to raise funds to help cover his funeral, memorial services and other expenses, has so far raised over $19,000.
