(Scroll down for video) A couple is now childless after their two sons died just three month apart.

The heartbroken parents, Paul and Julie Tsatsos of Michigan, spoke of their tremendous loss with the deaths of their teenage sons, who were very close to each other.

The couple’s younger son, 17-year-old Ryan Tsatsos, died as a hero after pushing a female friend away from the path of a speeding car.

While doing so, he was struck by the car. He flew 30 feet in the air and fell into a ditch, police said. The incident took place in the early morning hours in Mount Pleasant, as a group of friends walked to their residence hall.

“He was loving, he was caring, he cared for all his friends, he loved his family, and he would do anything for anyone,” his mother Julie said.

Ryan’s sudden death comes only three months after his older brother, 19-year-old Darryl, died in a three-car crash after police tried to pull him over for speeding.

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding Darryl’s death.

Ryan’s friends spoke about how much he was hurting after losing his older brother, whom he loved dearly, while still putting on a brave face as he started college.

Their parents set up a GoFundMe page with a goal of collecting $10,000. Kindhearted people reached out to support the family, and they have now collected over $50,000.
