Eric Church’s brother Brandon Church passed away in June and now his cause of death has been revealed.
Autopsy reports show that Brandon died as a result of chronic alcoholism, and notes that he had a history of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizure disorder.
Brandon suffered two seizures at the time of his death, and one, which happened when he was on the way to the hospital, resulted in him suffering cardiac arrest.
Brandon also suffered a thickening of his heart, coronary artery disease and liver damage, all of which were the result of his alcohol abuse.
Since Brandon’s death, a Scholarship Memorial Fund has been set up, with $45,000 raised so far.
Brandon was 36 years old and wrote songs with Eric like "How Bout You" and "Without You Here."
