“I went through all the chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and got to the point where I was comfortable with everything that was happening. I had my brain wrapped around it, and I was in a good place anyway,” he told News 9 of Oklahoma.

The “Red Solo Cup” crooner praised his wife, Tricia Lucus, for being “the best nurse” during his treatment.

“Oh, she was a soldier. She’s the best nurse. The first time we went to Houston, to the hospital, she stepped in and she just took control and said, “We got this.” Let’s go.’ So she says, ‘We’ll get this and don’t worry about it,'” he told his hometown news outlet.

The music legend is survived by his wife and their three children, Shelley, Krystal and Stelen. He also leaves behind four grandchildren.
