The news will come as an emotional blow to country music legend and Hank Jr. for the Republican Republican, who has four surviving children, two with Mary Jane, his third wife.
Hank and Mary met for the first time in 1985 at a concert in Washington and were married in 1990. They had two children: a daughter, Katherine Williams-Dunning, and a son, Samuel Williams.
They separated in 2007, but worked on their relationship and reconciled in 2011.
She was Mary Jane Williams’ third wife. His first marriage was to Gwen Yeargain from 1971-77, and the former couple had a son, musician Hank Williams III.
Palm Beach County police officers responded to a medical call at the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa (seen above) around 5pm on Tuesday.
Williams, 72, who was recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, is best known for his song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” a version played on Monday Night Football for more than 20 years. The couple is listed in 2003
He was married to Becky White from 1977-83, and they had two children together, daughters Holly and Hilary Williams, who both went on to careers in the music industry.
Holly gave birth to a daughter named Stella June in December 2020 and is married to Chris Coleman.
Mary Jane and Hank Jr. also have three grandchildren; two of their daughters, Katie (Beau Weston Dunnings and Audrey Jane Dunnings), as well as Sam’s grandson, Tennyson.
His death follows a series of tragedies and controversies surrounding one of country music’s most famous families.
The couple’s daughter died in a car crash in Tennessee in 2020 when she lost control of the SUV she was driving.
Her husband, Tyler Dunning, was in the vehicle and survived the crash by being airlifted to an area hospital with serious injuries.
Their youngest son, Sam, 24, said in a YouTube video shared in February by his father and half-sister, Holly, after Katie’s death that Sam was deeply affected by his loss.
She received several placards, mostly saying “I want to quit,” in a since-deleted silent video where she asked for help ending the court order.
“I have been silent for a long time. I want to get out of this, and I don’t care if people know,” read the caption of the video.

“They took my grieving process, my spirit, my money, my car, my house and everything possible to ‘protect me’. Well, I have to protect myself from them.”
He added: “I’ve been working to quit my heartbroken job since dear Katie went home. I don’t deserve this. It’s a scary step, but I don’t see what else to do here.”
“I am ashamed of my family and ashamed. I’m more than done. I have returned the spirit. Get. Me outside Please.”
Although the video was deleted shortly after it was posted, TMZ confirmed that the emergency conservatorship was filed in August 2020, and there has been no further comment on the status of the court order since then.
Hank Jr. He is the son of the legendary musician Hank Williams, and is one of the most influential artists in the country music genre.
The elder Williams died in 1953 at the age of 29, but he was instrumental in transforming the western genre, where the country songs he wrote decades ago are now considered standards.
Williams, 72, was recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and is best known for his song All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight, a version played on Monday Night Football for more than 20 years.
In an October 3, 2011 interview on Fox & Friends, Williams called a golf game in which President Barack Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner teamed up against Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Governor John Kasich “one of the biggest political mistakes ever.” “. ‘
When he investigated why the innocent 18-hole game bothered him so much, he said, “Come. Would it be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu… in the shape of this country?’
He described the President and Vice President as “enemies” and then compared them to the “Three Stoles”.
Hank, Mary Jane and Katie (far right) watch Sam’s first performance at the Grand Ole Opry in October 2019. Katie died almost eight months later in a tragic car accident.
Sam, Hank Williams Jr.’s youngest son, posted a YouTube clip asking to be released from a conservatory placed by his father and stepsister Holly.
He received a number of posters, notably a silent video saying “I want out”, which has since been deleted, in which he asked for help to end the court order.
When Gretchen Carlson commented, “You used the name of one of the most hated people in the world, in my opinion, to describe the president,” Williams responded, “Well, it’s true. But I’m telling you like it is.”
Because of his comments, ESPN dropped his song from Monday Night Football during the week and replaced it with the national anthem.
He said his analogy might be a little “extreme”, but he still had the utmost respect for the office of president.
“The workers are hurt, and no one seems to care. Both sides when everyone else is out of work on the ninth hole make us very angry. Something has to change. Policies must be changed,” he said in a statement at the time.
Days later, ESPN backtracked saying they had decided to officially “part ways” with Williams and would no longer play his song at the start of every Monday night game.
Hank said it was his decision to pull his song from the sports network: ‘After reading hundreds of emails, I’ve made MY decision. With my initial release on October 3rd, you (ESPN) have stepped on the toes of First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so me, my song, and all my filthy friends ARE OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.”
Sam was with his father when Hank was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville in November 2021, three months before it was revealed he was under a conservatorship.
