A freak accident claimed the life of Heidi Montag’s stepbrother, Eric O’Hara, who was a veteran of several combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, People.com has reported. He was killed Thursday at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel in Colorado when he slipped and fell off a sloped roof trying to clear snow. ‘The Hills’ star said, ‘Losing my brother, at an early age, is such a tragedy.’ Heidi’s father, Bill Montag, is married to O’Hara’s mother, Terry, both of whom survive Eric, as do his father, two sisters, another stepsister, Holly Montag, his grandmother and other relatives. I’m not really sure what to say. Anytime someone passes away whether tragic or not, it’s always a sad time. No matter who you are when you lose a member of the family it’s always tough to deal with.
