Pat Horgan passed away over the weekend the premier’s office said in a statement

The Premier's Office shared the sad news with a short statement to the media.

The premier's office issued a statement Thursday expressing sadness at the death of Pat Horgan on January 6.

"It is with great sadness that we announce that Pat Horgan, Premier John Horgan's brother, passed away", it reads. "He will be deeply missed by his family and friends".

The statement mentioned that a service will be held in Pat's home community of Port McNeill on February 10, 2018.

In lieu of flowers, the premier's office said donations can be made to the BC Cancer Agency in support of lung cancer research.

Horgan has referred to his brother as a father-figure who took on many family responsibilities after their dad died while the premier was a toddler.

Horgan was often at his brother's bedside in off-hours during last year's spring election campaign.
