Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Has Died After Long Battle With Cancer

Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Has Died After Long Battle With Cancer

Real Housewives Of New York star Jill Zarin has lost the love of her life to cancer. Zarin’s 71 year old husband Bobby passed away after a long battle with cancer last week.

The heartbroken reality TV star posted a statement on her website saying Bobby died on Saturday, January 13th and the family were devastated.

Bobby’s long battle with cancer began in 2009 when he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and then again in 2016 when he was found to have a brain tumour.

The statement said, “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. There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are.

When Bobby was first diagnosed in 2009 he went on to have radiation treatment as well as having his thyroid removed. At the time he explained the process saying, “The radioactive iodine usually kills off whatever undetectable cancer cells are left in your body after surgery.

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 then returned in his lungs before he was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2016.

His stepdaughter Aly Shapiro posted a touching tribute to Bobby on Instagram after the news.

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.

“He never loses anything, never forgets anything and when I think he is wrong… he is always right! I will post some photos over the last 20 years… truly a Love Story. Enjoy!”

Our deepest condolences to Zarin and her entire family. Such sad news.
