“It is with great sadness that I announce the loss of my brother Bob last night joining my brother Don in the big soccer field in heaven,” he wrote in the caption.

He continued, “I lost two of my best friends in the space of two months. RIP Don and Bob, irreplaceable buddies.”

People flocked to Stewart’s Instagram to share words of support.

“How sad…deepest condolences to you all. RIP Bob,” Piers Morgan commented on Stewart’s post.

Musician David Foster then commented, “My sincere condolences SRS.”

“I’m so sorry for your loss my friend 😢” added Sharon Stone. Journalist Dolly Alderton chimed in: “❤️ I’m sorry for your loss.”

A fan also wrote: “So very sorry for your loss. Heartfelt condolences to you and your family.”

Another user wrote: “Sorry for your loss Rod. My grandparents were friends with your parents, Rod. My grandma told me that Don has a beautiful voice. REST IN PEACE.”

On September 9, Stewart announced that Don had died at the age of 94.

The “Love Hurts” singer is the youngest of five siblings and has two living sisters, Peggy and Mary.

One of Stewart’s eight sons, Sean, was taken to hospital after being hit by a truck in October.

Page Six reported on Oct. 26 that the 42-year-old is making a “full recovery” from the car accident.

“Sean has been working on his Dirty Weekend clothing line and some new travel projects for TV and other media. He was driving to a meeting and the truck ran into him pretty quickly,” his manager Wendy Feldman said of the incident at the time.

After his injury, Sean was taken to Cedars Sinai Hospital, where an MRI showed he had a dislocated shoulder and other injuries.

Feldman also stated that Sean is “very fortunate that no one was seriously injured and very grateful for the efforts of the emergency and medical staff.” Rod Stewart mourns the loss of his brothers Don and Bob
