We are saddened to report that country superstar Eric Church has confirmed that his younger brother, Brandon, died last week at the age of 36.
Brandon’s father, Kenneth, tells TMZ that his son had a seizure at his home in Granite Falls, North Carolina Friday and was being transported to the hospital when he suffered another. The second episode appears to have sent Brandon into cardiac arrest.
According to People, a representative for Church said in a statement: “It is with great sadness that the Church family confirms that Eric’s brother, Brandon, passed away Friday evening.”
The statement continued, asking friends, family and fans to send donations in Brandon’s honor.
“In lieu of flowers please leave a message for the family and/or make a donation to a Scholarship Memorial Fund created in Brandon’s memory,” the statement read. “The Brandon E. Church Memorial Scholarship Fund will be used to bless others and honor a benevolent life. Thank you for showing your love and support to the Church family.”
As of Tuesday evening, a little over $21,000 had been raised in Brandon’s honor for the Brandon E. Church Memorial Scholarship Fund.
According to Taste of Country, Church is slated to perform on July 7 at Country Concert in Fort Loramie, Ohio and has several other shows scheduled through August.
Rest in peace brother.
