"We are devastated by the loss of my beautiful brother," Walker Jr. told PEOPLE. "He leaves a void in the hearts of my family and his friends. Nick's battle in life was not an easy one. I will be forever grateful that my God afforded a small moment at the very end of Nick's life, and I was able to hold his hand as he journeyed on."

PEOPLE went on to note that Walker Jr. shared a lengthy tribute to his brother on Facebook.

"I love you so much big brother I hope you heard me talking to you at your bedside you are with me and I can feel it I love you," he wrote. "you we're best friend and I never in a million years thought I'd be writing this for my ACE I was there through every step we all love you no matter what and we'll all stay strong for you , New Years didn't have to start like this and you just told me you HAD to see me for New Years but I'm blessed I got to talk to you last night you will forever be my best friend nobody will ever take your place."


Gordon's death comes four years after Brown passed away in the Georgia townhouse that they shared together. It also comes three years after he was found liable for his significant other's death. Following the ruling, Gordon was ordered to pay Brown's estate $36 million.
