TMZ reports that Brandon Church, brother and frequent songwriting partner of country star Eric Church, suffered multiple seizures before he passed away on Friday. The first seizure occurred while Brandon was at his home in Granite Falls, North Carolina, and the second—which led to cardiac arrest—happened in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
Law enforcement believe Brandon died of natural causes and suspect no foul play. On Monday, Eric posted a note on his website that stated, “It is with great sadness to confirm that Eric’s brother, Brandon, passed away on Friday evening. In lieu of flowers, we are encouraging everyone to donate to a Scholarship Memorial Fund created on Brandon’s behalf. You can leave a message that will go via email directly to [Church’s parents] Ken and Rita.”
