Kansas City Mayor Sly James’ oldest son has died, his office confirmed Thursday.

Eric James lived in Springfield and had been ill for a while before he died Tuesday evening, spokeswoman Joni Wickham said.

No information on funeral services was available. The mayor tweeted a thank you to people for their kind wishes.

The mayor was not at Thursday’s City Council meeting, where council members had a moment of silence for his son.

James has two other sons and a daughter.
