The man who wrote “The Legend of the Duck Commander: The Life and Times of Phil Robertson” — Phil’s older brother, James — won’t be celebrating the holidays with the rest of the Robertson clan this year.
James “Jimmy Frank” Robertson passed away over the weekend after a sudden heart attack. A message posted on Phil Robertson’s Facebook page reads:
Please pray for the Robertson family. Phil & Si’s brother, Jimmy Frank, passed away this weekend.
Please pray for Connie his wife, their sons & families. It’s tough to lose such a wonderful man so quickly, he had a heart attack.
It will hard on them this week & for a long time after the funeral. Pray for strength for all of them.
Describing his book that tells about the life and times of “The Duck Commander,” James Robertson wrote:
It was a great experience writing a book about my younger brother, Phil Robertson. I hope his Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty fans enjoy it.
It is the original story of Phil’s upbringing and the way of life that shaped this unique individual and made him the legend he is today.
It’s about a reactionary father who taught him he could live off the land, his struggles as a young man to reconcile what the really wanted to do with his life and the steadfast love of his wife Ms. Kay who saw him through his turbulent years.
The culmination is in the invention of a duck caller that has made him wealthy and the love of God that led to his present way of life.
James F. Robertson, dead at the age of 78.
