Actor Bill Murray is mourning the passing of his older brother Ed.

Murray's golf apparel company, William Murray Golf, confirmed Ed's death on Tuesday in a brief Facebook post.

According to the golf apparel's website, Ed Murray was the eldest Murray brother.

On Monday, Ed's younger brother Joel tweeted in remembrance of his brother, who was "the nice Murray who remembered everyone's name."

USA Today reported that Ed served as the inspiration behind the lead character in Caddyshack. Ed even mentioned receiving a "special thanks" in the end credits of the cult classic, which starred his brother, Bill, on the apparel company's website.

The Murray brothers - Ed, Bill, Brian, Andy, John, and Joel - were inducted in the Caddie Hall of Fame in 2015.
