Comedian Tony Knight died last month at the age of 54 following a "terrible accident" while attending the Rock '&' Cars Festival in France, a relative confirmed to FOX News Digital on Thursday (July 4).

“He was only 54 and having the time of his life,” the family member said. “He was fit, healthy, happy and had everything going for him. He was charismatic, funny, passionate and so very loved by [his partner] Hayley [Wright], his family and his friends all over the world.”

A large tree branch was reported to have failed on top of Knight and several other festival goers, though the comedian was the only victim killed, according to French media reports via FOX News Digital. A GoFundMe page launched by Joanne Allen on behalf of her sister Hayley.

“Hayley is now living her worst nightmare and facing life without Tony, her soulmate,” Allen wrote on the fundraiser.

“She is in Bouillac having to deal with the difficulties of Tony being an Englishman with Australian residency living in France, arranging a funeral, covering hospital expenses, meeting police detectives, doctors and the mayor, visiting the accident site and sorting Tony’s estate, all while experiencing a crushing amount of grief and disbelief in a foreign country.”

Knight was also known for being a "dog listener," with his website claiming he had “helped thousands of dog owners all over the world solve problem dog behavior with simple techniques that use no force, pain, domination, drugs or gadgets.”
