Only son of Baseball Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio and actress Dorothy Arnold who were married for less then 5-years in 1939. Joe Jr., was a U.S. Marine Corp. veteran. He struggled with drug abuse and homelessness during the last 20-years, was estranged from his celebrity father and saw him infrequently in recent years. However, he did take part as a pallbearer at the elder DiMaggio's funeral in March of '99. Joe Jr. was divorced and had two adopted daughters who were doted on by their grandfather. Joe Sr. set up a trust fund for his son that would pay him $20,000 a year. Joe Jr. was not breathing and had no heartbeat when taken by ambulance to Sutter Delta Medical Center late on a Friday night. All attempts to resuscitate him failed and he died at 11:25 pm. Cause of death was listed as "natural causes". (bio by: Mr. Ed)
