The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce her brother’s passing.
Hunter shared a number of photos of the brother-sister duo, including a snap of them posing at her wedding, photos from their childhood and a screenshot of a sweet text message exchange that expressed their love for each other.
Alongside the photos, Hunter wrote: “The most gut wrenching words I’ve ever had to write in my life, one that no one ever wants to.
“My chest is heavy and I feel like I’ll never breathe again, I don’t know how this pain repairs or if it ever feels like life can live again.
“My baby brother went to be with the Lord on May 1st.”

She continued: “The most kind, gentle, loving, beautiful, intelligent, funny human being this earth has ever known.
“If you know me you know I rave about my brother, he is and will always be the love of my life.
“I would text my brother every single night the words ‘Goodnight I love you’ because I never wanted a day to go by without him knowing how much I love and adore him.”
Hunter said that everyone loved her brother, writing: “Every one around him has always said nothing but beautiful things, his friends’ parents always said ‘we’re so glad Tynan is in our child’s life, he’s such a good influence.'”
After sharing that Tynan was “absolutely brilliant,” she revealed that he passed away “just three weeks shy of graduating SFSU with a computer engineering degree.”

“He was knowledgeable about this stuff beyond belief, he would show me his homework and I felt like Einstein was showing me something.”

“I’m so grateful for beautiful the 23 years God gave us with him.
“I know we will meet again because the Bible says so.”
Hunter then quoted a Bible verse Revelation 21:4: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
The emotional post concluded: “Thank you for making me a big sister. Thank you for your heart.
“Goodnight my sweet beautiful Bubba, I love you.”
