Buzz Aldrin Previous Marriages And Kids Explored
Buzz Aldrin has been married four times and shares three kids with his first wife.
He first married Joan Archer on December 29, 1954, with who he remained together for 20 years and shared three children: James, Janice, and Andrew Aldrin.
Aldren’s second wife was Beverly Van Zile, whom he wed on December 31, 1975. They divorced after three years in 1978.
Likewise, his third marriage was to Lois Driggs Cannon. They married on February 14, 1988, and divorced in December 2012.
Aldrin has a grandson named Jeffrey Schuss, born to his daughter Janice. He also has three great-grandsons, Nathaniel, Benjamin & Archer, and one great-granddaughter, Kaia Nicole.
In 2018, the former astronaut was tangled in a legal dispute with his kids Janice and Andrew and former business manager Christina Korp.
The conflict was there as they claimed that Aldrin was mentally impaired by dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and financially and socially manipulated by his new friends.
They were asking to be named his legal guardians. However, in June, Aldrin fired back by filing a lawsuit against the trio and the businesses and foundations run by the family.
The situation ended as his children withdrew their petition, and he also dropped the lawsuit in March 2019.
A Look Into Buzz Aldrin Family
Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr. was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, United States, to his parents, Marion Aldrin (née Moon) and Edwin Eugene Aldrin Sr.
Edwin Sr. was an Army aviator during the first world war and the assistant commandant (1919 to 1922) of the test pilot school at McCook Field, Ohio.
He eventually left the Army in 1928 and served as an Executive at Standard Oil.
Aldrin had two older sisters: Madeleine and Fay Ann. His nickname, which was made his legal first name in 1988, came about since Fay used to mispronounce “brother” as “buzzer,” which became shortened to “Buzz.”
He graduated with a mechanical engineering degree in 1951 from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Aldrin obtained a Doctor of Science in astronautics from MIT, later becoming the first astronaut with a doctoral degree in NASA.
