Sad news for George Strait, his father passed away this past Tuesday morning.  John Byron Strait was living in Texas, George Strait’s hometown, but had spent the last month in the hospital before he passed away earlier this week. 

Strait’s father was a junior high math teacher and a farmer.  George’s brother, John Byron “Buddy” Strait Jr., died in 2009 at the age of 58.

According to Taste of Country,

“We are grateful for the time over the last few weeks we were able to spend with Daddy before he passed away,” the singer said in a statement. “I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this difficult time as we mourn our family’s loss.”

Details on Strait’s dad’s cause of death weren’t made available.  Reports have said that funeral services are on Thursday, but a representative for Strait says the service is for friends and family only.

John Byron Strait was 91 years old.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the Strait family.
