Money had numerous health issues throughout his life. In 2001, he joined a 12-step program for alcohol and drug addiction recovery. He was also a long-time smoker, which may have caused his stage 4 esophageal cancer — a diagnosis that he only received last month.

Money is survived by his wife, Laurie, who he’d been married to since 1989. He also leaves behind his children: Julian, Joseph, Zachary, Jessica, and Desmond.
