Lois Driggs Cannon, the most recent ex-wife of astronaut Buzz Aldrin, passed away in Utah.
Sources close to Aldrin tell The Blast that Cannon passed away on July 17 from natural causes. She is survived by three children from a previous marriage.
Aldrin filed for divorce in 2011 after 23 years of marriage. The divorce was extremely bitter and Cannon walked away with half of his money and $9,500 per month in support.
The couple did not have any kids.
Aldrin has been going through a legal battle recently with his family. As The Blast previously reported, he is suing two of his children and a former business manager for allegedly misusing his credit cards and transferring his money around without his permission.
He claims his son Andrew does not tell him about pending or future business transactions, removes large sums of monies from Aldrin’s accounts, and continues to represent him in business and social capacities despite his repeated requests to stop.
Recently, Buzz Aldrin’s attorney filed documents requesting to withdraw from the case.
Aldrin’s first wife, Joan Archer, passed away in 2015. She was the mother of his three children: James, Janice and Andrew.
