"As you know, my brother, Danny passed away yesterday. He's always been such a trooper, surviving everything life threw at him, and we kinda expect he would get through this time as well," the post, shared to the social media service on Thursday night, said.

Fans who wish to pay tribute to Johnston can donate to the Hi, How Are You? project, a mental health awareness nonprofit founded to honor Johnston's legacy, the post said.
