His last Instagram post featured him engaging in one of his beloved outdoor activities, surfing, just four days ago. The comments section was filled with heartfelt tributes from numerous fans, remembering him and extending sympathies to his loved ones.

Musser is survived by his fiancée, with whom he had been in a relationship for over six years.

They had recently gotten engaged last year, and in a tribute to Musser, his fiancée posted a series of throwback photos on her Instagram Story.

"RIP to the love of my life," Paige wrote over a "vision board for 2023" on which she posted photos of him and engagement images. "I will never stop loving you."

Above a photo capturing them together at a red carpet event, she wrote, "Today is the worst day of my life. We were so happy."

"You were the best fiancé I could of [sic] ever asked for," Paige wrote alongside a photo of him surprising her with matching Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUVs. "I don't even think I can drive my G-Wagon anymore."

Family and Friends Shocked

Paige also posted a photo of them enjoying a night out together from the early stages of their relationship. "We look like babies here,' she wrote over the throwback photo. 'This was 6 years ago."
