Last photo taken of Bob Marley before he died of cancer in 1981


This is the last known photo taken of raggae legend Bob Marley before he succumbed to cancer on May 11, 1981. He was on his way to die at home in Jamaica after fighting the cancer without success for eight months in Pennsylvania, but never made it home. He died at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami (now University of Miami Hospital) at the age of 36. The spread of melanoma to his lungs and brain caused his death. His final words to his son Ziggy were “Money can’t buy life.”
