Veteran rock star Ted Nugent has penned a heartbreaking letter on his official Instagram page, devastating after the unexpected death of his brother, John Nugent.

John Nugent is the younger brother of Ted Nugent and he died the age of 66 this week. Ted didn’t give details about why he died, announcing the devastating news. After his brother’s death, the rock star took to social media to pay his tribute to John.

As you can see how much Ted Nugent suffered in the letter which he wrote for his brother. This length letter has told us how perfect his brother is.

Ted Nugent shared a lot of photos of himself with John from their unforgettable experiences, with many followers heading to the comment section to pay their tribute for John Nugent.

Here’s the heartbreaking letter of Ted Nugent:

“Good-bye My Dear Hunting Brother John. I want you to know my younger brother John. He died this week at the age of 66, and the Nugent family is in a whirlwind of heartbreak. I’m not sure I can even get through this tribute to him.

If ever there was a glowing, positive force of nature, it was Johnny. The guy could light up a room and magnify a joyful spirit like no one I have ever known.

I don’t care what the mood may have been prior to John’s arrival, but immediately everybody had a smile on their face, laughter was in the air and everything turned positive.”

He continued:

His work ethic alone was a constant reminder of just how efficient and productive a human being can be, and as a brother, husband, father, uncle and full-on great American, he was a shining light for 66 years.

We are being flooded with support and good wishes from around the world from everyone who ever had even the slightest encounter with John. Everybody loved Johnny Nugent, and we struggle to make sense of his early departure and a day without him.

The guy would get up every day of the year at 4am and make his way to his foreman duties at the Pepper Construction sites in downtown Chicago. He was notorious for not only getting the job done, but getting it done ahead of schedule and under budget.”

He also added:

“In Chicago mind you! Think of the entrenched corruption and obstacles he would face in that gangster run environment.

Which reminds me of the time the mafia tried to bootleg my concert tee shirts in New York City during one of my soldout Madison Square Gardens concerts back in the 1970s.

John and I were told about gangs of punks with sacks of merchandise out on the streets ripping me off, so we did what a couple of Detroit born and raised brothers would do and took off to confront the thieves.

Well, suffice it to say the NYC thugs had never run into the Detroit Nugent brothers, and when the dust settled, we had possession of all the merchandise which featured my name, image and likeness, and the mob was not real happy. …CONTINUE READING LINK IN BIO!”
