LATEST: BRUCE WILLIS' younger brother ROBERT died yesterday (28JUN01) losing his battle against pancreatic cancer.
Robert's big-hearted movie star brother had put his career on
hold to care for him during the last stages of his battle
with the illness.
Bruce had flown to Boston, America, to meet Robert on
his discharge from hospital after surgery and took him back with
him to his Los Angeles mansion, where some reports suggested he had been sent to spend his final days.
In a statement Bruce wrote, "We very much loved our brother.
He was not only a good brother but a wonderful son to our
parents. He will be sorely missed."
Bruce has asked that instead of flowers, people wishing to pay
their last respects should send money to the ROBERT WILLIS
MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND. (SVD/WNV/KW)
