Devastated English Athlete Rio Ferdinand who is still grieving over his wife, Rebecca Jane’s sudden dead, thought wife had few more years to live. Rio was told by the doctors at the Royal Marsden Hospital that she would live for another 2 to 5 years, and was also told that she was well enough to visit her and rio’s place, but to his shock, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, she died after just 5 weeks in the hospital, leaving behind her husband, the kids and her parents. The 36 year old who is set to retire later this year, will now have to learn to live life without his deceased wife in it. According to sources, his wife kept him grounded, all this has happened so suddenly.
The former accountant and fitness trainer first met Rio in the 1990’s when he was still signed to West Ham United. She soon started dating him and then married him in the year 2009. They have 3 children together. She passed away on Saturday, May 2nd after being diagnosed with breast cancer and was laid to rest on Tuesday May 12, 2015 in a private funeral that was attended by many of the couple’s friends including Wayne and Colleen Rooney, Alex Ferguson, Darren Fletcher, Nemanja Vidic, Christine Bleakley and Robin van Persie. The funeral was attended by at least 200 people, where all of them avoided wearing black clothes. The 34 year old was different and special, she was not into the whole celeb thing, and she was not interested in the whole flash life according to Ferdinand.
The Queens Park Rangers F.C’s defender who has over 6.2M followers on Twitter, has not tweeted ever since he lost his wife. I once again offer my deep condolences to Rio Ferdinand for losing his wife.
