Brad’s rep, Linda McAlister, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the star passed away in Fort Worth, Texas.

“He was a true Renaissance man. Not only was he interested in all that life had to offer, but he was gifted for it,” his family said in an obituary.

“Even though he was taken prematurely, he has lived his life to the fullest.”

It concluded: “…He was greater than life. Brad was loved by many and loved people back, a true friend, trusted colleague and a devoted husband and father, he will never be forgotten and his legacy will live on. “

He had an impressive resume starring alongside famous faces, most notably with Holly Hunter and Richard Dreyfuss in the 1989 fantasy drama Always – directed by the mind behind classics like Jaws and ET The Extra Terrestrial.

The film is a remake of 1943’s A Guy Named Joe.

However, Brad has been part of many other roles, such as in 1991’s Flight of the Intruder for director John Milius.

Two years later, he played the title character in the 1993 miniseries Ned Blessing: The Story of My Life and Times, and he reprized the role in Lone Justice 2 in 1995 and then in Lone Justice: Showdown at Plum Creek in 1996.

Before making his mark on television and film, Brad joined a professional rodeo circuit in 1984, where he caught the eye of a casting director looking for cowboys for a beer commercial.

This led to Brad’s work as the Marlboro Man for the cigarette brand in various commercials and advertisements.

He also appeared in numerous Calvin Klein advertisements.

The star is survived by wife Laurie, 35, and their children Shane, Bellamy, Rachel, Eliana, Eden, Rebekah, Annabeth and William.
