Ricci Martin, the youngest son of legendary singer Dean Martin, has died at the age of 62.

His family made the announcement on Facebook, saying that they were “devastated”.

The family did not confirm the cause of Mr Martin’s death.

 “My heart breaks to announce the untimely death of my beloved brother,” Ricci’s sister Deana wrote on Facebook. “My family and I are devastated. He was one of the sweetest souls I have ever known. Ricci’s kindness, sweetness and loving nature will be missed more than words can say. ‘Rest in peace, Ricci. I love you!’”

Earlier this year the entertainer was forced to cancel his UK tour dates after falling on the ice in front of his house.
