Ramon Castro, Brother to Leaders, Dies

Ramón Castro, the oldest brother to Cuban leaders Fidel and Raul, has died, Cuban state media announced Tuesday. He was 91. Ramón Castro, who physically resembled Fidel, supported his brother’s revolution, but instead devoted his life to farming. Ramón Castro continued to work in agriculture after Fidel Castro rose to power in 1959 and was often seen in Havana driving around on a tractor. No cause of death was reported. His body was reportedly cremated and his ashes will be transferred to the Castro family farm in Biran, according to state media.
