MONTREAL, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Canadian singer-songwriter Celine Dion is mourning the loss of another important man in her life.

Her brother Daniel died of cancer Saturday in a palliative care residence outside Montreal, the CBC reported.

The eighth of 14 children was 59. News of his death comes two days after his Grammy Award-winning sister's husband Rene Angelil succumbed to throat cancer.

Angelil's funeral is to take place in Montreal Friday, while a viewing will be held the following day for Daniel.

Celine, 47, has temporarily postponed shows for her Las Vegas residency as she recovers from the back-to-back losses.
