Carson Daly Loses His Stepfather Five Weeks After His Mother Died (UPDATED)

"He's reunited with Mom now," said the TODAY host.

UPDATE (Oct. 25, 2017, 9:55am) Carson Daly returned to Today on Thursday morning and shared his memories about his father and family, saying "He taught me so much about life and really the man that I am. I’m grateful that I had 85 years with him. He was an incredible person.”

Cancer has unfortunately loomed large in Carson Daly's family. His mother Pattie Daly Caruso passed away five weeks ago from breast cancer, and now his stepfather Richard Caruso, who had bone cancer, has also died.

"Pops passed away today with absolute dignity & pride," the TODAY host posted on Instagram. "He's reunited with Mom now."

“Some people will say, it's not the cross — it’s how you bear,” Carson told TODAY after her passing, noting that her first husband and Carson's father Jim passed away from bladder cancer. “Her life is a constant example for me of how to bear that cross.”
