Fitness Icon Robert Kennedy Loses Battle with Lung Cancer

The fitness world lost an icon this April 12, 2012 with the passing of Robert Kennedy, publisher of Oxygen magazine and husband to Tosca Reno, fitness model and creator of the Eat-Clean diet.

Bob Kennedy lost his battle with lung cancer at the age 73 and is survived by wife, Tosca Reno and four adult daughters Chelsea Kennedy, Rachel Corradetti, Kiersten Corradetti, and Kelsey-Lynn Corradetti (he was preceded in death by his only son Braden Robert James Kennedy last year following complications with pneumonia).

On April 9th, Tosca announced on her blog that Bob’s treatments were unsuccessful and that the family was coming to terms with the time he had left:

“We will soon be losing a wonderful person, father, great leader and inspiration for both the Company and this industry at large. However Bob’s life’s work, dedication and impact on bodybuilding, fitness and health and the support and inspiration to 10’s of millions of people will continue through all of you.”
