Bob was born in 1945 to Cadella Booker, who is black, and Norval Marley, who was Caucasian. Norvel had little contact with his son and died before Bob became famous
Bob's own end was tragic. A foot he injured playing soccer was diagnosed as being cancerous in 1977. He refused to have the foot amputated because of his religious beliefs, and by 1981 the cancer had spread to his brain, and he died in Miami.
