Hillary Clinton’s youngest brother Tony Rodham, has died at the age of 65. Clinton said that her brother died on Friday, but the cause of his death is unknown.

On a post on Twitter, Clinton said, “We lost my brother Tony last night. It’s hard to find words, my mind is flooded with memories of him today. When he walked into a room he’d light it up with laughter. He was kind, generous, and a wonderful husband to Megan & father to Zach, Simon, & Fiona. We’ll miss him very much.”

Clinton is the oldest with her two brothers, Hugh Rodham being the middle child. Tony Rodham was a businessman who at times leaned on his sister and brother-in-law, former president Bill Clinton. In a court case, Rodham said that he did business with the Clinton Foundation and used the Clintons’ connections in Haiti for a building project.


Rodham held a variety of jobs over the years which included a prison guard, insurance salesman, private detective and business investor. After Bill Clintons’ election, he worked as a field organizer for the Democratic National Committee.

Rodham was married to Megan Madden, whom he wed in 2005 after a divorce from his first wife, Nicole Boxer. He fathered three children: Zachary Boxer Rodham, Simon Rodham and Fiona Rodham.
