Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner Ronald Burkle’s son Andrew dead at 27


Andrew Burkle, the son of billionaire businessman and Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner Ronald Burkle, died Monday at age 27.

“It is with the deepest regret and sadness that we announce the death of Andrew C. Burkle on January 6, 2020 in Beverly Hills, California,” reads a statement from his family obtained by People. “He is deeply loved by his family and friends and will be greatly missed.”

A cause of death has not been released for Andrew, who was a film producer.

“While the family appreciates the outpouring of love and support, they ask that the privacy of the family be respected during this difficult time,” the statement reads.

Beverly Hills Police have not officially identified Andrew Burkle, but confirmed to the Daily News that first responders received a call about an unconscious male at a home shortly before 7:30 p.m. Monday and determined he was dead shortly after they got to the scene.

Andrew’s father is the founder of the private equity firm Yucaipa Companies, and Forbes estimates his net worth to be $1.5 billion. Uber, Airbnb and Foursquare are among the companies that Ronald Burkle, 67, has invested in.

In addition to his father, Andrew is survived by his mother, sister and brother.

Andrew’s producer credits on IMDB include the 2019 comedy film “Airplane Mode” and an in-development project titled “The Juiceman.”
