Ronnie Milsap’s son was found dead today in a Nashville area boat arena. Todd Milsap was 49.

According to The Tennessean, Todd was found dead on his houseboat at Four Corners Marina by his own son, who had not heard from his father in two days.

Emergency crews responded to a medical issue Saturday morning at Four Corners Marina at La Vergne Couchville Pike south of Nashville.

The younger Milsap was raised in Nashville and attended Franklin Road Academy and Hillsboro High School.

The six-time Grammy winner said of is son, “Our son Todd was a force of joy, life, creativity and giving from the moment he was born. He made such a mark on our world in his years on this planet, everyone who met him was richer for it. It is too soon to even understand this loss, and I hope it’s something no one has to bare. Please keep his three children, their mothers and Joyce and I in your prayers at such a fragile time.”
