Country music legend Willie Nelson is mourning the loss of his brother Ira Doyle Nelson, Jr. following his death on Wednesday.
News of 77-year-old Ira’s passing was posted on the country music veteran’s Facebook page on Thursday.
The sad announcement suggested Ira was “a gentle man who will be dearly missed.”
Ira worked in the transportation industry for many years, and served as a tour bus driver for his brother Willie, as well as other notable musicians such as Jon Bon Jovi, Van Halen and John Fogerty.
He also spent time in the transportation departments for film and television.
Nelson is currently on a brief break from touring, but is scheduled to appear onstage at a concert with Beck in Kansas City, Missouri on 15 May.
