Brino's sister, Myrinda, posted a tribute to her brother on Instagram.

"To my amazing and crazy brother. You might be gone but it’s true when people say 'gone but never forgotten.' Saying that you were a blessing is an understatement. You brought light to so many lives and you did so much with the too short of a life that you had. I had the privilege of growing up side by side with you for an absolutely wild 21 years. Believe me when I say that you drove me so insane at times, but you were also a part of some of my most cherished memories. I am so so happy to know that I was beyond loved by you and that I forever have a guardian angel by my side," Myrinda wrote.

"7th Heaven" aired from 1996 - 2007.
