Daniel Dion, brother of singer Celine Dion, has passed away at age 59.

News of his death comes fresh off the heels of the loss of Celine's husband, René Angelil, 73, who had battled throat cancer for years.

A day after Angelil's death, Celine's sister, Claudette, revealed to the Montreal Journal that Daniel was also dying. "It's very painful,"she told the news outlet. "It's a matter of days or hours. It looks a lot like René, he had cancer of the throat, tongue and brain."
