Joe Jackson died early Wednesday morning at 89 just days after the ninth anniversary of his son, Michael Jackson‘s death, TMZ reports.

His family was by his side as he was in hospice in Las Vegas. Before his passing he was visited by his wife, Katherine, and some of Joe’s children and grandchildren.

Last Friday, The Daily Mail reported the patriarch was hospitalized on his death bed with stage four pancreatic cancer. Jackson had battled a series of illnesses over the years.

The Jackson 5 manager suffered from a stroke and 3 heart attacks back in 2015. Doctors implanted a pacemaker.

In his living years, he was under fire more than once for his controversial parenting after his adult children spoke out on his parenting style. However, Jackson refused to back down saying his parenting made them stronger.

The father of 11 remained a protector of his children until he passed.
