Hillary Clinton’s youngest brother Tony Rodham died Friday night, the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate announced Saturday on Twitter.

“We lost my brother Tony last night. It’s hard to find words, my mind is flooded with memories of him today,” she tweeted. “When he walked into a room he’d light it up with laughter.”

Clinton went on to describe her brother, who was born in 1954, as “kind” and “generous” in the June 8 tweet. “We’ll miss him very much,” she said.

The cause of death is not immediately known.

Rodham is survived by his wife, Megan Madden, and his three children: Zachary, Simon, and Fiona. He was previously married to former Sen. Barbara Boxer‘s daughter, Nicole Boxer.
