Mark McAllister's brother Francis was one of 96 people who died following overcrowding at Hillsborough during the FA Cup semi-final in April 1989.
Background statements are being read out in court at the start of the new inquest into the disaster.
Mr McAllister said his brother was generous and "could charm the birds out of the trees".
