Hunter McGrady Mourns Little Brother Tynan's Death at 23

Hunter McGrady is sharing some tragic news.

The 28-year-old model revealed that her younger brother, Tynan, has sadly died at the age of 23 in a post to her Instagram on Tuesday (May 4).

“The most gut wrenching words I’ve ever had to write in my life, one that no one ever wants to,” she captioned a series of photos of the two together.

“My chest is heavy and I feel like I’ll never breathe again, I don’t know how this pain repairs or if it ever feels like life can live again. My baby brother went to be with the Lord on May 1st. The most kind, gentle, loving, beautiful, intelligent, funny human being this earth has ever known. If you know me you know I rave about my brother, he is and will always be the love of my life. I would text my brother every single night the words ‘Goodnight I love you ❤️’ because I never wanted a day to go by without him knowing how much I love and adore him. Every one around him has always said nothing but beautiful things, his friends’ parents always said ‘we’re so glad Tynan is in our child’s life, he’s such a good influence,’” she continued.

“He was absolutely brilliant, just three weeks shy of graduating SFSU with a computer engineering degree. He will get that degree, we will make sure of it, he worked too hard not too. I’ve never known someone to be so passionate about computer engineering, coding, cars, and gaming. He was knowledgeable about this stuff beyond belief, he would show me his homework and I felt like Einstein was showing me something,” she went on to say.

“There is no telling why these things happen, why accidents happen, why life is taken too short. I’m so grateful for beautiful the 23 years God gave us with him. I know we will meet again because the Bible says so. ‘He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.’ Revelation 21:4 Thank you for making me a big sister. Thank you for your heart. Goodnight my sweet beautiful Bubba, I love you ❤️.”

Stars expressed condolences in the comments, including Tess Holliday, who wrote: “I am so sorry Hunter. If he was anything like you and Michaela, I know he was as extraordinary person. I’m sending love and prayers to your family, and know that Bubba will be y’all always 🤍🕊I love you.”

We are sending our best thoughts to Tynan‘s loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.

The 28-year-old EDM producer’s older brother, Griff, shared a statement about Pierce’s passing, which was due to a “tragic struggle with his mental health.”

“It breaks my heart to share with you that Pierce passed away on Thursday evening following a tragic struggle with his mental health,” the statement began. “Pierce was so incredibly full of life, love & unimaginable creativity. He was kind, caring, thoughtful, silly & sweet. The most magical person that we were all so blessed to know, hear & see. He was an expert at absolutely anything he set his mind to & had this incredible ability to retain knowledge unlike anyone I’ve ever known. The only word that truly can describe his abilities is genius.”

Griff continued that Pierce “could captivate a room of strangers in the blink of an eye with only one hope – to make everyone feel loved, comfortable & welcomed. He traveled the globe for the better part of a decade doing what he loved & cemented powerful friendships with so many wonderful people along the way, accomplishing more in his career in music than most could dream to accomplish in a lifetime. He loved you all so much & wanted to give you everything he had; and he had so much to give.”

Pierce made a big impact on the music industry with his breakout single “Kuaga (Lost Time)” in 2015, and his final album, Keeping the Little Things, was released last August.

His family thanked fans, extended family and friends for their support and have also created the email address pierce@piercefulton.com for fans and friends to send any memories or thoughts about Pierce.

They have also vowed to start an organization aimed at creating “real & lasting positive change” for those battling with their mental health.
