Bob Marley married Alpharita Constantia ?Rita? Anderson on February 10, 1966. They had four children together: Cedella (born 1967), David (known as Ziggy, b. 1968), Stephen (b. 1972) and Stephanie (b. 1974). Bob Marley also adopted Rita?s daughter Sharon (b. 1964)? Rita Marley, Ziggy Marley, Stephen Marley and Cedella?s son Skip Marley have all had musical recording careers of their own? Bob Marley died after a melanoma (or skin cancer) from his toe spread to his brain and lungs. The melanoma was discovered in 1977 after Marley injured the toe during a soccer game; he reportedly refused to have the toe amputated as recommended by doctors, and over the next four years the cancer spread until it ended his life.
