When Joe Jackson, 89, passed away on June 27, his family quickly shared their feelings about their beloved father, grandfather, and husband with their fans.

The Jackson family patriarch was reportedly hospitalized earlier this month with a terminal illness, which sources said was stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

His wife Katherine, who served as a much-needed nurturing figure to the family´s 10 children, explained her husband by saying that beating children was commonplace for African American fathers of his age and background.

Joe Jackson had been struggling with his health for the past several years.

He married Katherine Scruse in 1949 and they had ten children: Maureen (Rebbie), Sigmund (Jackie), Toriano (Tito), Jermaine, La Toya, twins Marlon and Brandon, Michael, Steven (Randy) and Janet.

"I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see. The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes", he wrote.

Joe Jackson, patriarch and taskmaster of the Jackson family, has died. He formed a band called the Jackson Brothers in 1963, which included his sons Tito, Jackie, and Jermaine; three years later, the group was renamed the Jackson 5 when sons Michael and Marlon were added to its ranks.

Jackson and his wife had been living apart for the past few years following a tumultuous 69-year relationship during which Jackson fathered a love child, had multiple affairs and was accused of abusing the couple's children. "People wonder why I always have children around".

The group went on to sign with Motown Records, and they quickly scored four No. 1 singles with "I Want You Back", "ABC", "I'll Be There", and "The Love You Save".

Joe confessed to being a hard father during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, revealing he often used a belt to keep his kids "out of jail", insisting it "kept them right".
