Heartbreaking news for Clint Black and his family. Clint's father, G.A. Black, died at the age of 78 on Sunday (Dec. 2). According to a statement, it is believed that the elder Black chose to end his life due to grief following the death of his wife, Mary Lou, and his own declining state of health.
“Our family is devastated by this news,” said Clint in the statement. “We are still in the beginning stages of preparations to honor our father, and at this time, we respectfully ask for privacy until we have had the opportunity to fully process what’s transpired over the last 48 hours.”
G.A. Black is survived by sons Mark, Brian, Kevin and Clint, as well as numerous extended family members.
