    The former Democratic presidential candidate's brother, Tony Rodham, was previously married to ex-Sen. Barbara Boxer's daughter, Nicole Boxer.

    Hillary Clinton announced on Twitter that her youngest brother passed away last night. She described him as "kind, generous and a wonderful husband and father", adding that they'll miss him very much. 

    The cause of his death has not been clarified yet. 

    Tony Rodham, who was born in 1954, worked as a businessman. He worked for the Democratic National Committee during the 1992 presidential election and entered consulting later in the 1990s.
