Eric Hill, a contestant on the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, passed away Wednesday following a paragliding accident on Sunday.

“Eric shared his final journey with us this morning as all his immediate family were able to be at his side when he passed away,” Hill’s sister Karen Tracy posted on Facebook. “Thank you to all of your love and support and prayers and fasting. It was amazing to be with so many of his friends and family yesterday in the hospital who came to express their love for Eric. He gave us such a gift of a life fully lived and fully shared, and allowed us all to be a part of his last adventure here on earth.

I love you so much, little brother!”
