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.”
