Celine Dion’s Brother Dies Aged 59

Celine Dion’s brother dionDaniel unfortunately died on Saturday after a battle with cancer at the age of 59.

Daniel was the eighth of fourteen children, and spent his final days at the Maison Adhemar-Dion, a care centre located in Quebec.

The entertainer’s brother leaves behind two adult daughters, two grandchildren and a large extended family. His funeral will take place where the Dion children were raised at St Simon-et-Jude in Quebec.

A family statement released said “taking into consideration the reserved character of their deceased brother, the family wishes respect and discretion from the media.”

This marks the second tragic news Celine Dion has received after the death of her husband Rene Angelil, who died on Thursday at age 73 after a similar battle with cancer.

The family confirmed that Angelil and Daniel were suffering from similar illnesses after Angelil was admitted to Maison Adhemar-Dion with cancer of the throat, brain and tongue.
