Rod Stewart is in mourning after the loss of his two brothers just months apart.
On Friday, the singer posted a short but sweet tribute on Instagram to his brother Bob, who passed away last November, just two months after the passing of his eldest brother Don.
Sharing a photo of the program from Bob’s funeral service at Islington Burial Chapel in London, he wrote, “I said Farewell to my Brother Bob today, with his coffin draped in a Rangers flag (life long Glasgow Rangers fan).”
“We loved our game days up in Scotland together, ” he wrote, reminiscing on their sweet memories together.
Bob passed at the age of 87, just a day short from his 88th birthday.
“Now he joins Brother Don, rest in peace boys. Two of my best mates gone within just a few months.”
Several family members also expressed their love in the comments, with his wife and TV star Penny Lancaster sharing an inside joke, writing, “I loved that he called me Pencil instead of Pen.”
His daughter, Ruby Stewart, commented with a simple dove emoji, commonly used to symbolise peace, freedom, or love.
In December, the British singer announced on Instagram that he was mourning the loss of his two brothers.
“It’s with great sadness that I announce the loss of my brother Bob last night, who joins my brother Don on the great football pitch in the sky,” he captioned, with an image of a candle flame and the words “Rest in Peace”.
The British singer is the youngest of five children, surviving his brothers along with two of his sisters, Mary and Peggy.
