Sad news today for the country world. George Strait‘s father, John Byron Strait has passed away. The high school math teacher was 91 and lived in Big Wells, Texas.
“We are grateful for the time over the last few weeks we were able to spend with Daddy before he passed away. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this difficult time as we mourn our family’s loss.”
Our thoughts are with the country icon and his family during this difficult time.
The funeral will be private and held for family and friends only. For fans wanting to send their condolences, the family is accepting donations, instead of gifts, to the Jenifer Strait Memorial Foundation.
