Friends and loved ones are still feeling the aftershocks of the sudden death of rapper and music mogul Dr. Dre's 20-year-old son Andre Young Jr. But those closest to him will always remember him as a happy guy who had an optimistic outlook on life.

"He always had a smile on his face," Sarah Steinhorn, Young's former classmate at Stoneridge Preparatory in Simi Valley, Calif., tells PEOPLE, "even when something bad would happen, like if he didn't pass a test or didn't do as well as he wanted to. He always looked at the positive side.

"I remember him liking to go to parties in high school but not for the reasons that people think," said Steinhorn. "It was never about drugs or alcohol with him. He just really enjoyed being around people, talking and interacting and meeting new people."
