Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 14) — The son of singer-actor Randy Santiago and wife Marilou Coronel, Ryan Santiago, passed away Sunday.

In a Facebook post, Randy's brother, Reily, said his nephew's passing was 'peaceful and painless.' He did not mention the cause of death, but reports say Ryan suffered from a rare brain disease and multiple sclerosis.

"Our family and friends will terribly miss his infectious smile, funny jokes and his great fashion style," Reily said.

This was posted by a Facebook group formed in 2015 to support the young man, #HealRyanSantiago.

According to the group, Ryan is survived by his parents and brothers, Raphale and Raiko Santiago. He was 24.

Celebrities took to social media to express their condolences to the Santiago family.

Ryan's wake will be held from August 14 to 16, 2017 at 5 p.m. until midnight at the La Salle Greenhills Chapel.
