Regarding Andy

Singer Andy Williams knew he had bladder cancer before the fall of 2011 when he was undergoing treatment but he planned to return to performing in 2012. At the time he had told a local Branson reporter that cancer was "no longer a death sentence."

Now Williams, 84, has decided to remain at home in Branson surrounded by his wife, children and friends. Doctors have said that there are no more treatment options.

Williams was previously married to entertainer Claudine Longet, now 69; the couple had three children. In 1991 he married Debbie Haas, a non-professional.
