Country artist Eric Church confirmed earlier this week that his younger brother, Brandon, died last week at the age of 36 after suffering from multiple seizures. Read on for more information.
"It is with great sadness that the Church family confirms that Eric’s brother, Brandon, passed away Friday evening," a representative for Eric told People.
"In lieu of flowers," the statement continued, "please leave a message for the family and/or make a donation to a Scholarship Memorial Fund created in Brandon’s memory. 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."
To date, more than $23,000 had been raised in Brandon’s honor for the Brandon E. Church Memorial Scholarship Fund.
According to reports, Brandon's dad said his son passed away after suffering "multiple seizures." He experienced one on the way to the hospital which may have led him into cardiac arrest.
Eric's next performance is expected to be on July 7 at Country Concert in Fort Loramie, Ohio, according to Taste of Country.
