Dolly Parton's Brother and Longtime Songwriting Partner Floyd Parton Dies at 61

Dolly Parton‘s brother Floyd Parton has died. He was 61.

According to his obituary, listed on Tennessee’s Atchley Funeral Home website, Floyd died on Dec. 6.

“A renaissance man, Floyd was a man of many talents and areas of knowledge,” the obituary states. “He was an avid outdoorsman and had an abundant knowledge of nature as well as being an incredible cook.”

PEOPLE is out to Dolly’s rep for comment.

In addition to his love of the outdoors, Floyd was also gifted with musical talents, much like his 72-year-old famous sister. Together the siblings wrote many No. 1 hits, including the 1991 duet “Rockin’ Years” with Ricky Van Shelton — Dolly’s 23rd and Floyd’s eighth — and 1978’s “Nickels and Dimes” from her chart-topping Heartbreaker album

The youngest Parton sibling, Rachel, previously told PEOPLE how their mother encouraged them to sing at home and at church. “Singing was like breathing at home,” said Rachel, 59.

61, as well as brothers David, 76, Coy Denver, 75, Bobby, 70, and Randy, 64.

Dolly and Floyd’s brother Larry died just four days after his birth in 1955.

In lieu of flowers, the Parton family has asked that donations be made to Sevierville’s My People Senior Activity Center.

Recently, Dolly spoke fondly about her holiday traditions with her brothers and sisters.
