Barely two days after losing her husband, Rene Angelil to cancer, world famous singer, Celine Dion has lost her brother Daniel Dion, aged 59, to cancer.
Celine’s brother Daniel also died today in their hometown of Montreal in Canada.
Their sister Claudette told the Journal of Montreal how hard their family has been hit by the double tragedy.
“It’s very painful. It’s a matter of days or hours … It looks a lot like Rene, he had cancer of the throat, tongue and brain. Our family is very experienced.”
The Dion family (of which Daniel was the 8th out of 14 children), released a statement saying he will be remembered as “a gentle and reserved man of many talents”.
