In some tragic news in Elliot Lake, Mayor Dan Marchisella has announced the sudden loss of his teen son Brody.

The mayor took to social media early Monday to let friends and family know in a brief statement posted on Facebook:

“I have not spent much time on Social media lately and will probably avoid it for a while longer. I wanted my friends and family know about a tragic loss to us all that happened this weekend. Our son Brody’s life ended shocking us all. Brody was just 17 and becoming a most amazing young man. For any that knew Brody, he was a kind and caring soul who changed my life for the better and that of everyone he knew. Brody was not just my son, but one of my best friends. I love you Brody and hope we will see each other again someday.”
