The father of late fashion designer Kate Spade has died, just hours before Spade’s funeral was set to begin in Kansas City.
Earl F. Brosnahan, Jr. died at his home Wednesday night, according to a spokesperson for the family. Brosnahan was 89 years old.
The family said in a statement, “We are deeply saddened to announce that Katy’s father, Earl F. Brosnahan, Jr. (Frank), passed away last night at age 89. He had been in failing health of late and was heartbroken over the recent death of his beloved daughter. He was at home and surrounded by family at the time of his passing.”
Spade’s father passed just weeks after his daughter took her own life in her New York City apartment on June 5. The funeral in Spade’s hometown reportedly began minutes after the family announced her father’s passing.
Brosnahan, who was better known as Frank, leaves behind his wife Sandy, five children, and eight grandchildren.
