Former Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday announced that her eldest son, Ronald Brewer, had died unexpectedly over the weekend.
He was 54.
“Heartbreaking news for me,” Brewer wrote on Twitter, sharing a link to an online obituary. “Prayers for me and my family as we grieve are greatly appreciated.”
Brewer already lost one of her three sons, John Brewer, to cancer in 2007.
The cause of Ronald Brewer’s death was not immediately clear. The obituary said only that he had died in his sleep Saturday in Phoenix, and a family representative did not comment further.
