It’s been a difficult year for Sasha Farber, one of the most beloved pro dancers on Dancing With The Stars. For a while, fans started to suspect there was trouble in paradise for him and his wife, pro dancer Emma Slater. Just a few weeks ago, they confirmed their breakup. Since then, they’ve been off on their own adventures. Emma and her sister went to Europe while Sasha stayed home with their dogs, Ruby and Grinch.

But now, it seems like another hardship just befell Sasha.

The dancer lost his cousin earlier this year and now it appears that his grandfather just passed away. The Australian dancer took to Instagram to share the news with his followers.

“My grandfather had dementia and didn’t know who anyone was at the end, he didn’t even recognize my mum,” the dancer shared on his Instagram stories this week. “She told me today that he was sleeping and he squeezed her hand and a tear came down his face, and he took his last [breath]. At the end he felt and knew that it was goodbye, and now he is happy with his wife looking over us.”
