Ramon Castro, a lifelong rancher and farmer who bore a strong physical resemblance to younger brother Fidel Castro, has died, Cuban state media announced Tuesday. He was 91.

A farmer all his life, Castro supported his brother's revolution but did not take an active role in the armed struggle that brought Fidel Castro to power in 1959.

State media said that he died in the capital Tuesday morning. No cause of death was reported.
