Louis Brown Jr., the father of Nicole Brown Simpson, died on Thursday at the age of 90.

Nicole Brown Simpson's father died after 20 years of her demise. Louis Brown Jr. is familiar for the famous 1995 murder trial of her daughter with the suspect being football star O.J. Simpson.

On June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson was murdered with her boyfriend, Ronald Goldman, at her home in Brentwood, California. And her ex-husband, O.J. Simpson, was charged for both murders in the famous 1995 trial. But he was acquitted later on.

Louis Brown Jr. had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for a long time. He passed away at 3:40 a.m. on Thursday, June 10th at his home in Dana Point, California. He was 90 years old. Denise Brown, sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, has told PEOPLE on Saturday about her father's death.

"My dad had had Alzheimer's for a while," says 56-year-old Denise. "When his condition took a turn for the worse last Wednesday, my mom called me and said to come home. I flew home from Italy as soon as she called. I got there at 6 p.m., and he passed away not even 12 hours later. My mom said he knew I was there. She said, 'He waited for you to come home.' He was at peace." 

Louis Brown Jr. was an Army Air Force Captain. He was proud of being an Army Officer. He flew B-17 bombers in World War II. But he became a successful businessman later on.

"He was very proud to have served in the military. He never wanted any fanfare about it, though. He always said it was his duty and an honor for him to serve his country," said Denise Brown.

However, after the death of his daughter, he started the Nicole Brown Simpson Charitable Foundation to help victims of domestic violence.

"It was devastating for him," said Denise. "It's not supposed to happen like that. No parent should ever have to bury a child." Louis Brown's daughter, Margit, from his first marriage, had already been died to a longtime illness in 1989. 

At the time of his death, Louis Brown Jr., was surrounded by his wife, Juditha, and three daughters, Denise, Tanya and Dominique. He is also survived by two sons Rolf and Tracy from Juditha and a daughter Wendy from his first wedding. He also has grandchildren including two from Nicole Brown Simpson. Sydney Simpson and Justin Simpson were just 8 and 5 years old at the time of their mother's murder.

"My dad was a class act and a gentleman who was always there for us – and for Nicole," said Denise. "He was a great dad. We are all devastated that he is gone."

Louis Brown Jr. and his wife Juditha spent 58 years together as a married couple. Juditha and her two daughters, Tanya and Dominique, were present at home 24/7 to take care of Louis Brown Jr.

"I'm so blessed to have been able to take care of him at home," 44-year-old Tanya said. "I think he hung on for so long because he knew there was so much love in the house. I am the youngest and was always daddy's little girl. He was always my daddy first and became my friend later in life. He was always there for me. I could always lean on him. We all could. He was such an honorable man." 

Denise Brown and other family members are preparing for his funeral. But Louis Brown Jr. "wanted a military burial" and he has already told his family about this.

"People are writing to me now, saying what a class act he was," said Denise. "That makes me so proud. He was a lovely man. We will all miss him."
