Condolences to George Strait , whose father, John Byron Strait , died Tuesday at age 91. He had been hospitalized for much of the last month.

George says in a statement, "We are grateful for the time over the last few weeks we were able to spend with Daddy before he passed away. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this difficult time as we mourn our family's loss."

John Strait was a junior high math teacher and a rancher on his property outside Big Wells, TX. The funeral will be private, and the family requests donations to The Jenifer Strait Memorial Foundation in lieu of gifts.
