15-Year-Old Boy Dies in His Sleep After ‘Surfing’ on Roof of an Uber — Leading to Driver’s Arrest

A New York Uber driver is accused of manslaughter after three teenage passengers who’d been drinking allegedly paid him to let them climb onto the roof of his moving car — and then one of them fell off and died, PEOPLE confirms.

The driver, 24-year-old Danyal Cheema, of Huntington Station, was charged Monday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Ryan Mullen, of Cold Spring Harbor.

Cheema is being held in lieu of $ 200,000 bond following his arrest on Sunday. It was unclear if he’d entered a plea. His attorney, Christopher Renfroe, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In the incident shortly after midnight on Sept. 23, Cheema was behind the wheel of his 2010 Toyota Highlander as an Uber driver when he picked up the three teen boys in Huntington, after they had been drinking, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

On the way to their destination, the boys allegedly offered Cheema $ 70 cash — and gave him $ 40 — if he’d let them climb onto the car’s roof at an intersection so they could “car surf” as the vehicle took off, the investigation revealed.

Mullen and a second teen then remained on the roof as Cheema drove along Cove Road, with the third boy recording them in a Snapchat video.

Mullen’s subsequent fall led to head trauma “which resulted in his death,” according to the prosecutor’s office. Although Cheema brought all three boys to their destination at a home in Huntington, Mullen “succumbed to his injuries in his sleep later that day,” the prosecutor’s office said.

“This was an incredibly bad decision by the defendant and a bad decision by the boys involved,” District Attorney Timothy Sini said in a news release. “But at the end of the day, this defendant is an adult who was contracted to safely bring those boys home and he failed to do that.”

“We have a culture right now where the mindset is, ‘How can we outdo each other?’ Particularly among young people on social media, and we often see the tragic consequences of that,” Sini said. “A lot of young people think they are invincible and that’s something we need to keep drilling in their heads that this could happen to anyone when you engage in this kind of conduct.”

He added: “In this day and age, we often encourage people to use ride sharing services because it’s a safe alternative to drinking and driving. These boys were doing that; they were drinking that night and they made the right decision to contract with a car service.”

“Unfortunately the defendant made a reckless decision and engaged in reckless conduct that caused the death of a young boy, and he will be held accountable for that,” Sini said.

In his obituary, Ryan was remembered as a “loving son” and “fierce friend.”

He “lived life so large and his time here was short,” his family wrote. “God had other plans.”

Cheema faces five to 15 years in prison if convicted of the manslaughter charge. He is due back in court on Friday.

Former College Football Player Arrested After His Teammate Dies of an Opioid Overdose

Seven months after a promising defensive lineman failed to turn up to practice and was found dead by his concerned teammates, a former player from his college team has been arrested.

On Friday, one-time Rice University football player Stuart “Mooch” Mouchantaf was charged with supplying 21-year-old Blain Padgett pills containing an opioid 10,000 times more powerful than morphine.

The 25-year-old ex-player was allegedly preparing to flee the country before officers took him into custody on Thursday, ABC 13 reports.

The arrest follows the March overdose death of teammate Padgett. The college athlete allegedly believed he was buying Hydrocodone, a prescription narcotic painkiller, from Mouchantaf,  Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement Friday.

Instead, the footballer took pills that contained Carfentanil — an opioid whose legal amount is reportedly “invisible to the human eye” and was originally intended to be an elephant tranquilizer, the D.A. alleges.

In June, three months after his passing,  the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that the toxic effects of Carfentanil — which reportedly causes the brain to stop breathing — caused Padgett to die in his sleep, ABC 13 reports.

RELATED: Former Clemson Football Player C.J. Fuller Dies Suddenly at 22

Padgett’s parents, Mical and Windi, believed their son knew better than to take drugs from someone else.

“He knew that he should not have been taking it, but he did so,” Mical told the outlet, noting that the poor decision “cost him his life.”

“I know if he was here, he would say, ‘Hey, I take responsibility for this,’” Mical continued.

Windi added: “Blain knew about choices like drinking and driving and knew about choices, but I think that this is something that is fairly new, at least it’s new to us, that you don’t take anything from anyone unless a doctor has prescribed it for you, period.”

The young men played together in 2015 when Mouchantaf was a redshirt senior and Padgett was a freshman, reports USA Today. During his three seasons at Rice University, Mouchantaf totaled 51 tackles. Meanwhile, Padgett was considered “a key player” with a “commanding presence” for the team’s defensive front-line.

Following Mouchantaf arrest, Rice University released a statement to the news channel, thanking authorities for their work on the case.

“We’re deeply saddened to hear about the latest developments in the investigation in the death of Blain Padgett, whose family continues to be foremost in our thoughts,” they wrote. “We want to thank the Houston Police Department investigators assigned to this case for their hard work in the wake of this tragedy. In light of the fact that charges have just been filed, any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.”

After Mouchantaf was taken into custody and questioned on Thursday, a judge set his bond at $ 250,000 once police discovered that he had purchased a one-way ticket to Lebanon.

According to ABC 13, Mouchantaf — who has family in the country and is now considered a flight risk — must wear an ankle monitor and give up his U.S. passport.

The former player has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance causing death and the second-degree felony could result in a prison sentence of anywhere from five to 99 years if Mouchantaf is found guilty, the D.A. said.

At this time, it is not clear if he has retained legal counsel. He is due to appear in court on Monday.

Queen Elizabeth’s Doctor Dies in Tragic Cycling Accident in London

Queen Elizabeth’s longtime doctor has died in a tragic road accident in London.

Peter Fisher — a physician to the Queen for around 17 years — was killed when his bicycle collided with a truck in High Holborn, Central London, at around 9.30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The driver of the truck stopped at the scene and is currently assisting the Metropolitan Police with their investigation. The incident occurred on national Cycle to Work Day in Britain.

Buckingham Palace confirmed to PEOPLE that the Queen has been informed of Fisher’s death but had no further comment to make.

“He was much respected as a good doctor who saw homeopathy as complementary to medical care,” Sir Marcus Setchell, former surgeon-gynecologist to the Queen, told the London Evening Standard about the death of his colleague. “We are all shocked by his tragic loss.”

Gill Gaskin, medical director at University College Hospital, London — where Fisher, 67, worked for more than 35 years within The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM) — added that staff were “shocked and saddened” at his death.

“Peter was a highly regarded colleague and friend of many at the RLHIM,” Gaskin added in the written statement. “He was committed to holistic and compassionate care for his patients.”

“He will be greatly missed by his colleagues and patients alike.”

The royal family has used homeopathy (a holistic, natural approach to medicine) for generations. In 1920, the Duke of York, later King George VI, became patron of RLHIM, while Frederic Quin, who founded the hospital in 1849, was once physician to Prince Leopold, Queen Victoria’s father-in-law. The Queen continued her father’s patronage when she assumed the throne in 1953 and Prince Charles is known to be a big fan of using alternative therapies to treat both himself and his farm animals.

During his life, Fisher combined homeopathy and other forms of complementary medicine with conventional medicine, specializing in the treatment of rheumatological complaints including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and soft tissue syndromes such as fibromyalgia.

He also treated skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis and a range of general medical problems for both NHS and private patients.

“It is with deep sadness that Pete’s family and friends would like to recognize and honor the loving man, father, son and dear friend who has been tragically taken from us,” his family said in a statement released through Scotland Yard.

“He was devoted to his cause, a global authority in his field. We are all devastated by his sudden loss, as he had touched deeply so many of our lives.”

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are currently investigating the incident. No arrests have so far been made.

Michael Howells, Production Designer in Film and Fashion, Dies at 61

LONDON — Michael Howells, the fashion, film and theatre production designer whose work ranged from the dramatic runway sets for John Galliano’s Dior shows to the period backdrops for ITV’s “Victoria,” has died, according to his company Michael Howells Studio.
Howells, who wove his passion for history, travel, literature and the arts into his dramatic sets and costumes, died Wednesday of complications from a heart condition. He was 61, and is survived by his mother, a sister and a nephew.
A tall, gentle and elegant man with a razor-sharp intellect and fertile imagination, regularly collaborated with Galliano on the designer’s own label and at Dior. He also worked with Christian Lacroix and Alexander McQueen.
In 2007, Galliano told WWD that he would brief Howells — and then let him go wild. “He makes the magic happen and works out how to find a merry-go-round and transform Stade de France into a tumbledown Hamptons holiday,” said the designer. The carrousel from 1900 that Howells eventually found had to be dismantled and brought to the show piece by piece, by crane.
Galliano was referring to the October, 2006 show for his label, which was inspired by “Grey Gardens.” With help from Howells, Galliano had arranged a seaside

Nancy Sinatra Sr., Frank Sinatra’s First Wife, Dies at 101

Nancy Sinatra Sr., the first wife of the legendary Rat Pack crooner Frank Sinatra and mother of his three children, died on Friday. She was 101.

Her eldest daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jr., confirmed the news on Twitter — writing, “My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101. She was a blessing and the light of my life. 😢💙.”

On her website, Nancy Jr. revealed that her mother died at 6:02 p.m.

“This may be the saddest post I’ve ever had to write,” Nancy Jr. said. “She fought hard to remain on this earth but time got the better of her.”

“Godspeed, Momma and thank you for everything you did for us and for the world,” she added.

Reps for Nancy Jr. did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Nancy Sr.’s death comes two decades after the death of “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” who died in 1998 at the age of 82 of a heart attack.

Born Nancy Barbato, she met Frank when they were both teenagers. The pair married in 1939 in Jersey City, New Jersey — Nancy Sr.’s hometown.

They’d live there as newlyweds for years, with Frank working as a singing waiter to get his music career started and Nancy Sr. working as a secretary while raising daughter Nancy Jr., born in 1940, and son Frank Jr., born in 1944.

Eventually, the family would move to Los Angeles, where Frank would find fame on the charts and on the movie screen. Daughter Christina Sinatra, known as Tina, was born in 1948.

But a headline-making extramarital affair drove the couple apart. They divorced in 1951, with Frank famously marrying actress Ava Gardner just weeks after the papers were signed. After that, he’d have marriages to Mia Farrow and Barbara Marx.

At the time of their divorce, Nancy Sr. was 33. She was given custody of their children, their home, a Cadillac and a percentage of his wealth.

She devoted her life to her children, PEOPLE reported in 1986, but made no secret of her desire to reconcile with their father.

Nancy Sr. never remarried, preferring to retain the status of a divorced woman and be Mrs. Nancy Sinatra for life rather than lose the Sinatra name.

“Once you’ve had the best…” she told friends.

Nancy Sr. is survived by Nancy Jr., 78, and Tina, 70. Frank Jr. died of cardiac arrest in 2016 at the age of 72.

Photographer, 30, Dies After Being Swept Away by Flood Waters While Taking Photos in Storm Drain

Friends of a beloved Philadelphia photographer are mourning the woman’s death after she was fatally swept away in a storm drain during a flash flood last weekend.

Rebecca Bunting, 30, and her boyfriend were inside a sewer by Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia taking photos around 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, when a rush of water came through and dragged them both down the system, police say.

The man was able to pull himself out, but Bunting was swept away. A neighbor told 6 ABC that he heard a man screaming for help Saturday night. He said he ran outside to find Bunting’s boyfriend screaming her name by the water.

A rescue team found her body around 10:45 a.m. on Sunday, trapped under furniture left in Pennypack Creek near Philadelphia’s Holmesburg neighborhood.  In the wake of the death, Bunting’s boyfriend remembered her in a pair of Instagram posts.

“I’m glad I got to make so many memories with her. I love you so much Becca and I’m hurting so bad right now,” he wrote alongside a photo of the two posing together with wide smiles.

“Thinking back on all these memories makes me smile while these tears roll down my face. I will continue to share our memories since we had so many great ones. Please watch over your family and I, we really need it right now my love.”

Police say Bunting and her boyfriend entered the storm drain without permission to take part in “Urban Exploration,” in which they film their experiences while taking photos and footage at often abandoned locations.

“She was always trying to get really cool photos,” Bunting’s friend, Cristen DeDomenico, told 6 ABC. “She’s really talented. She could bring out beauty in any landscape.”

Bunting’s Instagram is filled with artistic photos of empty churches, plane wreckage, abandoned hospitals and other spaces. She amassed more than 15,000 followers on the social media site and often wrote of her love for photography.

“My camera is my tool,” she wrote alongside one Instagram photo of herself holding a camera. “Through it I give reason to everything around me.”

Friends have posted several tributes to Bunting on her Facebook page, and have announced a memorial for the artist scheduled for June 17.

“Words can’t express the heartache I feel in this moment. The world lost a truly amazing person Rebecca Bword Bunting …” one person wrote in a Facebook post. “Our weirdness and love for art quickly combined and you posed for a lot of MySpace worthy photoshoots (like this photo you climbed on a roof for) ha. We would spend days dressing up and taking pictures for fun.”

They continued: “We climbed rocks and “keep out” fences while exploring the places most people wouldn’t go. You always saw beauty in the things people took for granted. I loved having you as a neighbor and friend. You are an amazing soul that made an impact on the world through your work and existence. I’m grateful that I was able to meet such a beautiful person in my lifetime. Rest In Peace”

The cause of death was glioblastoma, which was diagnosed in March, according to his husband, Robert Wallace.
Witkowski worked in the men’s industry for more than a quarter-century, holding stints at Barneys New York, Merona, Jeffrey Banks, Polo Jeans, DKNY, Nautica and John Varvatos. He spent two tours of duty with Michael Kors, most recently as president of the company’s men’s division.

Unfortunately, Witkowski was too ill to participate, Banks said. “So we all got together to grieve and tell stories about Don. It was quite wonderful — we laughed and we cried, but we celebrated him.”

British Toddler at Center of Legal Battle Dies After Being Taken Off Life Support: ‘Heartbroken’

Alfie Evans, the 23-month-old terminally ill British boy at the center of a headline-making legal battle, has died just five days after he was taken off life support, his parents announced.

“Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am,” wrote his mother Kate James, 20, on Facebook early Saturday. “We are heartbroken. Thank you everyone for all your support 💙

His father, 21-year-old Thomas Evans, also wrote on Facebook, “My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30 😥😢😥😢😥 absolutely heartbroken💔😭 I LOVE YOU MY GUY💙💙💙👨‍👦👨‍👦.”

Alfie initially survived in the days after medical staff at Liverpool’s Alder Hey Children’s Hospital cut off his life assistance, Evans said. Alfie continued to live despite being in a “semi-vegetative state” as a result of a mystery degenerative neurological condition, surprising doctors who said further attempts to treat the boy would be futile, according to the BBC. Alfie initially survived on his own for six hours on Monday before doctors provided the child with oxygen and hydration.

“We wish to express our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Alfie’s family at this extremely distressing time,” Alder Hey Children’s Hospital said in a statement. “All of us feel deeply for Alfie, Kate, Tom and his whole family and our thoughts are with them. This has been a devastating journey for them and we would ask that their privacy and the privacy of staff at Alder Hey is respected.”

RELATED: What to Know About Alfie Evans, the British Toddler Taken Off Life Support After Legal Battle

The hospital also announced a makeshift memorial for the boy.

“We feel sure people will wish to place tributes to Alfie along with messages of support for Kate and Tom,” Alder Hey Hospital said. “To ensure there is sufficient space for these and to ensure the safety of all those who wish to visit, we have secured a suitable place in Springfield Park situated next to Alder Hey Hospital. This is on the advice of Merseyside Police.”

Evans and James have been in a lengthy battle to keep the ailing toddler on life support. Alfie has been at the hospital since December 2016.

However, a series of court rulings sided with doctors who said there was no hope for the boy, according to the Washington Post. The BBC reported that doctors argued that keeping Alfie on a ventilator would be “futile,” “unkind and inhumane.” Most recently, the European Court of Human Rights rejected the parents’ request to keep doctors at the Liverpool hospital from taking Alfie off of the assistance.

“I faught (sic) hard in court for my son because I know what’s right!!” the grieving father wrote in a Facebook post after the court’s decision. “And look where we are now my son is still ALIVE AFTER OVER 10 horrendous scary heartbreaking hours.”

The human rights court’s decision upheld that of Britain’s Supreme Court, in which justices said it would be pointless to take Alfie to Rome for treatment.

Still, the head of the Vatican’s Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital said the Italian defense ministry had a plane ready and waiting to take Alfie to Italy for treatment if the additional Tuesday hearing grants the family’s appeal, according to the Associated Press.

On Monday, Pope Francis even voiced his support for Alfie.

RELATED: Charlie Gard, Terminally Ill British Baby at Center of Legal Battle, Dies: ‘Our Beautiful Little Boy Has Gone’

“Moved by the prayers and immense solidarity shown little Alfie Evans, I renew my appeal that the suffering of his parents may be heard and that their desire to seek new forms of treatment may be granted,” the Pope tweeted.

RELATED VIDEO: Charlie Gard, Terminally Ill British Baby at Center of Legal Battle, Dies

In a fundraiser for Alfie, the family wrote that he was born “healthy and on time” in May 2016. However, the parents soon noticed Alfie was not accomplishing common milestones like lifting his head, maintaining eye contact and eating with his hands, according to the Just Giving fundraising page. Doctors initially believed the boy was simply a “late developer,” but became concerned when he began experiencing spasms and developed an infection.

The situation is similar to that of another London couple, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, whose son, Charlie, died in July after a lengthy court battle to treat the terminally ill 11-month-old baby. Earlier this year, Takesha Thomas and Lanre Haastrup lost their son, Isaiah, after a judge ruled that doctors could stop providing intensive care treatment to the boy who suffered brain damage.

Fulvia Visconti Ferragamo Dies at 67

MILAN — Fulvia Visconti Ferragamo died suddenly on Wednesday, aged 67. The exact nature of her illness was not disclosed, but it is understood it was a fast-moving form of cancer.
The daughter of the late Salvatore Ferragamo, founder of the namesake luxury company, she was creative director of men’s and women’s silk accessories, including foulards and ties – one of the storied core businesses of the house.
She is survived by her husband Giuseppe Visconti and their children Ginevra, Consolata, Angelica and Emanuele, as well as by her mother Wanda and her siblings Giovanna, Ferruccio, the chairman of the company, Leonardo and Massimo. Their eldest sister Fiamma died in 1998.
A private ceremony is to be held today in Milan, where Visconti Ferragamo lived, although she often traveled to Florence, where the company is based.
A member of the board, Visconti Ferragamo had a very active role in the company and attended all the main events that have marked its history, ranging from its initial public offering in 2011 to the ceremony announcing a donation to renovate eight rooms at the Uffizi Gallery in 2014, for example, as well as product launches and all the brand’s runway shows — although she did miss the fall show in February.
While discreet, Visconti

Terminally Ill Teen Dies Weeks After Fulfilling Last Wish to Marry His High School Sweetheart

Dustin Snyder, the terminally ill teen who fulfilled his dying wish of marrying his high school sweetheart in January, has died after a battle with a rare form of cancer.

The 19-year-old Valrico, Florida native “got his wings” on Friday according to his big sister Brittany Hails.

I love you Dustin Wade Snyder,” Hails wrote on Facebook, attached to a photo of her and Snyder. “No more suffering, god got you now.”

Snyder was given the devastating news of his terminal cancer at the beginning of January. Given just weeks to live, he told his mother Cassandra Fondahn that he wanted to tie the knot with his girlfriend, 21-year-old Sierra Siverio.

Five days later, his final wish came true after their entire community came forward to help make it happen.

“It started off with a Facebook post where Dustin’s sister asked if anyone had a tux and wedding dress,” family friend Nicole Jordan Roberts told PEOPLE at the time. “They were going to do it in their backyard and we were all going to bring food.”

Once the news spread, people started to come forward offering to donate everything from the wedding dress, venue, food, music and flower arrangements. “It was amazing and just so beautiful,” said Roberts, “but obviously very emotional.”

Brittany Hails, a guest in attendance at the impromptu ceremony, posted a photo on Facebook of the couple exchanging their vows.

The couple’s love story dated back to middle school, when they first met. But like most young romances, it fizzled out.

“They got back together two years ago before his diagnosis,” said Roberts. “Dustin knew that she was the one for him.”

The couple danced their first dance as husband and wife to Ed Sheehan’s hit “Perfect” at The Big Red Barn Venue in Oak Hill, Florida, as their closest friends and family looked on.

“This day was about being happy,” Roberts said. “I saw Sierra crying when he danced with his mom and she was crying with a smile across her face. It was hard thinking that this is the last dance she’ll have with her son.”

On June 28, 2016, just one day before his 18th birthday, Snyder was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma, a rare cancer. Doctors found a mass in his left lung and removed it, according to Roberts. After chemotherapy, Snyder was told the cancer was gone and the entire family celebrated. But just two months later, it came back. After more treatment, he was deemed in remission.

Then in December, Synder began to experience severe abdominal pain and went back to the hospital. The cancer had returned and there were now tumors in his stomach and around his pelvis.

“They told him he had just a few weeks and that there was nothing they could do,” said Roberts. “His mom told me she wanted to do as much as she could with him in the little time he had. She wants him to experience as much as he can.”

His sister started a GoFundMe page for their wedding, raising almost $ 40,000.

“He really wants to marry the woman that has stuck by his side through all the sleepless night and is now dealing with knowing he will pass any time soon,” she wrote on the page.

When Snyder left the hospital, he was put in hospice care. Despite his debilitating pain, he found the strength to stand up for his wedding ceremony.

“He was so strong,” said Roberts. “We wanted to make this the best day for the two of them — and it really was.”

RHONY Star Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Dies After Battle with Cancer

Jill Zarin‘s husband Bobby has died from cancer.

Jill announced the news in a family statement on her official website, revealing that Bobby died on Saturday surrounded by his family.

“With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer,” the family said in a statement. “There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone for all your love, and support during this difficult time.”

His stepdaughter Aly Shapiro remembered him in a touching Instagram post also on Saturday, sharing a gallery of photos of the two over the years.

“We ❤ Bobby…” she wrote. “Thank you for giving me such a wonderful family and being the most incredible step-Dad anyone could ever ask for. I don’t remember a time without you, and you will not be forgotten. Every shot of patron, every time we listen to Hotel California, every vroom of a Ferrari you will be right there with us. You fought with dignity and courage, surrounded by all of us with love and respect till the very end. You can rest In peace now, we love you so much.”

She also provided service details, which will be held Monday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. at Riverside Memorial in New York City.

Bobby was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009 and went on to have his thyroid removed as well as underwent radioactive iodine treatment.

“The radioactive iodine usually kills off whatever undetectable cancer cells are left in your body after surgery,” he previously told PEOPLE. “We thought it was cured – and it usually is in about 93 percent of cases. But I wasn’t able to absorb the radioactive iodine. So it came back.”

The cancer wound up returning and spread to his lungs. In Fall 2016, Jill revealed to PEOPLE that he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent Gamma Knife Radiosurgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Although the Real Housewives of New York City alum remained hopeful throughout Bobby’s treatment, she said “his cancer took an unexpected turn” over the summer. In July, Bobby was admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where he recovered from a procedure.

“He is not going down without a fight,” Jill told PEOPLE exclusively. “We’re hoping for a miracle,” she said about the love of her life.

RELATED VIDEO: Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Hospitalized with Cancer Complications

After he was admitted to the hospital in July, Jill hadn’t left his side and did everything she could to make him comfortable.

“I’m in shock,” she said. “I’m in physical shock. I’ve lost 8 lbs. already. He was doing well for a very, very long time. Then the cancer came back in his brain last fall and since then, it’s been one thing after another.”

As Bobby’s treatment continued, Jill remained dedicated to raising money for thyroid cancer research for him and others who have the deadly disease through her Annual Luxury Luncheon, which was opened to the public for the first time last year.

Last January, the couple celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary. “Happy 16th wedding Anniversary to the most wonderful husband, father and friend in the world. I love you with all my ❤❤❤ we will get thru this and be together forever,” Jill wrote about her husband. 

And in celebration of his birthday last February, Jill posted multiple photos of Bobby on Instagram with loving captions. “I’m so happy and at peace these days with the love of my life living La Vida Boca!” she wrote.

“He is the most loving and caring person I have ever known besides my father. Sometimes life just isn’t fair,” she previously told PEOPLE about Bobby. “But we have such a great love story. He is the love of my life and I will do everything in my power to heal and care for him.”

Bobby ran Zarin Fabrics, which was opened by his father, Harry Zarin, in 1936. The New York native is survived by Jill, his three children — Jonathan, David and Jennifer Zarin — and stepdaughter, Ally.
