John Warhola, the brother and father figure of the late pop artist Andy Warhol, died at 85 on December 24 after battling pneumonia, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Following the death of their father, Andrij, in 1942, John, three years older than Andy, helped raise his younger brother and made sure he attended college with money their father left and contributed his own money toward completion of Andy's education.

John later helped establish the Andy Warhol Museum in their hometown of Pittsburgh. Andy Warhol (born Warhola) died at 58 in 1987 following complications from gall bladder surgery.
